Yes, it does work this way. I don't know what you mean with "information 
about sub-components". The VMT vFieldTable entry contains all published 
fields of the class and thus all the sub controls that are visible 
through the RTTI and thus for the designer. If the IDE does not use that 
yet, then it definitly should.

There is no need to add anything, because the necessary information is 
already there. It's just that the IDE doesn't use it yet.
