Match frame a subclip to its master clip
When working with a subclip in the source monitor, hitting "Match frame" should load up the master clip it was generated from.
Yes, this will require logging master/subclip relationships.
This feature has been requested for nearly 5 years.

It further delays your workflow because the lack of this simple feature forces you to stop editing, go search on the web, forums and boards and look for solutions or work arounds for which there is none.

I frequently have my AEs subclip all the dialogue from a scene, especially if it's heavily improvised or if there's a lot of roving camera. The fact that I can cut with the subclips, but not match back to the masters to quickly pull a reaction is frustrating to say the least, especially with a director or EP in the room. Now I have the the AEs add the clip or scene name to the subclip so I can manually find the master, but it still takes WAY longer than it should.
I love Premiere, but this is something AVID has had right for a long time. Let's get on this!

Currently, you can match-frame back to a master clip if the subclip has restricted boundaries, but not if it's unrestricted. Is there a reason why match frame works on one but not the other?
+1. The lack of proper subclip match-framing behavior is one of the few remaining features that prevents me from moving all of my post production work away from Avid Media Composer. Takes what should be an easy "one click" command and makes it a painful process to find the source of a subclip. I realize to the uninitiated it doesn't seem like a big deal, but these little moments really add up and steal time away from creating great content. The lack of good subclipping tools negatively impacts my experience with Premiere Pro, and causes me to think twice about using it for some projects. I can't be more emphatic, and I hope Adobe's engineers aren't ignoring requests like this one.
