There is needed an API to be able to retrieve for the components (DesignBean's)
for which elements the designer should paint the designtime border. E.g. this is
needed for page fragment, panels etc.

Currently the decision is left up to the designer, but the designer doesn't have
any specific knowledge about the components so there is not such algorithm
possible to create which would satisfy all the needs.
Only the component author can know when and for which elements of its component
the designtime border should be shown and for which not.
