Multiple top-level components

Why does the UI Designer not allow me to have multiple top-level
components? Since I have to somehow attach the components that I have
defined in the form to the containing class, e.g. in a JDialog, use
getContentPane().add(), I should be able to have multiple top-level
components and add them to the different BorderLayout points in the JDialog.
