In fact, it is not. "Split panes" is more powerful than frozen panes.
For example, you can scroll in both panes. 

So is it equivalent to the multiple views you can have of the same
spreadsheet in Gnumeric (Except that in Gnumeric they are in different

- lack of text orientation
- rough support of headers and footers for printing

"rough"? What are you looking for that you can't do in Gnumeric? 

Look at what is in Calc to have an idea of what could be done (I am not
sure it is perfect though).
In gnumeric, you only have several pre-defined headers and footers. You
cannot customize them as in Calc. As an example, try to write in the
header: "this is spreasheet written by gnumeric" :-)

Pardon? Of course you can. Just select "customize header" from the
header popup menu and type it into any of the 3 fields to appear at the
left, in the middle or at the right. Of course there could be a nicer
interface to including such things as page numbers rather than typing in
cryptic codes.)

Also you cannot define borders and backgrounds.

Well yes. (And personally I am happy about that!)
