Micheal, I'm thinking they mean just a visual representation of the 
non-visual components, by having them displayed in a different area. For 
you, they would show up wherever you want to put them (by default the 
designer could put them in a grid), but the XY won't change of the 
components themselves, just putting them out of the way for the ones 
that want the option on (if I got it correctly).
