    This is a very critical issue related the productivity of RSA user.
    Our customer has built their financial industry solution based on RSA but they have difficulties in handling these issues because their designers and developers complain that the limitation of editing sequence diagram causes decreases of the development productivity and delay of schedule.
    Sequence diagram is very import diagram in their design phase and they have 100+ designers who work with sequence diagram concurrently.
    This enhancement feature is very essential part to improve the productivity for drawing the sequence diagram dramatically.
    The customer is a big influencer in our business and It will impart our IBM business directly.
    This is also registered as a know bug in MDT.Papyrus product in eclipse community.
