Allow Paste Locations in Sequence Diagrams

When pasting model elements in a UML sequence diagram the elements are pasted to the end of the diagram. The user must then reorder the elements to get the desired model. We request that the pasted model elements are pasted at the cursor location. If this cannot be realized we request that it will be pasted before or after the currently selected element. Addiotionally it would be helpful to get context menu items as "paste before/after".The requested behavior is consistent with copy/paste experience from other IBM and non-IBM tools.
