I have to disagree with this statement.  The RAMA lived in 
Krakow,  which is, of course, Poland and not in Germany,  the true 
seat of minhag Ashkenaz.  Many of the minhagim that are Minhag 
Frankfurt differ from what the RAMA writes.  If you read the four 
seforim Shorshei Minhag Ashkenaz by Rabbi Binyamin Hamburger,  you 
will see many differences between the minhagim of Poland and those of German.
