Why should a layout manager ever require ownerdraw? It has to arrange 
and size its client controls, nothing else. In so far it's a simplified 
docking manager, with docking support required only at design time. At 
runtime no dock-headers are needed, so that no PaintSite method is 
required (or it does nothing).
