Is there an overlay specification for \frame<...>{ that yields the last version of the frame if the frame is built with relative overlays?

The handout version achieves this, but sets it globally. I'm looking for a frame-specific solution. I think it works (not elegantly) with \frame<N>{ for some sufficiently large N.

    Note that \frame is only provided for compatibility with old documents, it was superseeded by \begin{frame} <content> \end{frame}, see section 8.1 footnote 1 of the beameruserguide

Not sure what you mean by overlay (\pause, \only, \uncover, ...), but it is possible to modify the behaviour of the command before a specific frame, and restore it right after. For instance:

\documentclass{beamer}

\begin{document}

\begin{frame}{frame1}
First sentence
\pause
Second one
\pause
etc...
\end{frame}

\let\savepausebehaviour=\pause 
\def\pause{} 
\begin{frame}{frame2}
First sentence
\pause
Second one
\pause
etc...
\end{frame}
\let\pause=\savepausebehaviour

\begin{frame}{frame3}
First sentence
\pause
Second one
\pause
etc...
\end{frame}

\end{document}

Frames 1 and 3 use the default behaviour of pause, while frame 2 behaves like there is no \pause.

    To clarify my question: If I had absolute overlay specification such as <3-5,8> on say \items then I can freeze my frame at a given overlay counter. For relative overlay specifications there is a similar hidden counter that increments by + or \pause. With \frame<N> I can still freeze my frame (or replay it with \againframe<N>{label}). Is there a direct way of getting the last counter for a frame? Note that I might also have a <+> element that is not on the last version of my frame. So just disabling the \pause does not answer my question.
