public interface MElementContainer<T extends MUIElement> extends MUIElement
This is the base for the two different types of containment used in the model; 'Stacks' (where only one element would be visible at a time) and 'Tiles' (where all the ele elements are visible at the same time.
All containers define the type of element that they are to contain. By design this is always a single type. Where different concrete types are to be contained within the same container they all both mix in a container-specific type. For example both MParts and MPlaceholders are valid children for an MPartStack so they both mix in 'StackElement' (which is an empty stub used only to constran the stack's types.
