there's a UML metamodel object called a partition that sounds like a swimlane, 
but i'm can't tell if its the same thing. 2.0 should support additional 
graphical elements (besides those present in the uml metamodel) so, if 
partitions aren't swim lanes, an implementor of activity graphs or diagrams 
could build that capability.
