Background and Frame in Panels

I always wondered why it wasn't easier to set a Background color for a 
Panel. It is possible with the following construction, but then we lose the 
Black frame.

Panel["xxx", "Title",
 BaseStyle -> {FontSize -> 20}]

Panel["xxx", "Title",
 BaseStyle -> {FontSize -> 20,
   PanelBoxOptions -> {Background -> LightBlue}}]

Is there any simple way to get the Frame back?

Why shouldn't Frame, FrameStyle and Background be direct options for Panel? 
Why is only FrameMargins an option?
