A swimlane is suppose to have a name associated with it. It contains activities
within it. Should it just be a box + text string for name + activity boxes
around it? Or should it be an object?

If it was the first item then it would suck trying to move it around to make it
fit on the diagram. First I would have to move the box and resize it. Second I
would have to move the activities. Finally moving the name to its new place.

If I could just have all the items associated with a swimlane grouped together
so that resizing/moving the swimlane moved all objects contained in it that
would make life much easier.

So I guess a box is not the best answer in my opinion. The objects of a swimlane
are grouped together for ease of diagram creation. So I guess all objects that
are placed within the boundaries of a swimlane are "associated" with it. I hope
that I am clear on what I define swimlanes to be.
