WF 4 Feature request: Group activity into Sequence

One of the things developers often have to do is replace a single activity with multiple ones. This requires replacing the original activity with a Sequence and then adding the original activity to the sequence. When developing UI in Blend the same kind of operation is often required to wrap an element inside of a StackPanel, Border or something similar. In Blend this is very easy to do as there is a context menu for just this action. So all that is needed is right click and wrap something in the container of choice.

I would like to see the same functionality in the workflow designer where the user can select an activity and wrap it in a Sequence, TryCatch, TransactionScope and other relevant activities. I would also like to see the opposite where a developer can remove a wrapping Sequence is there are no other child activities.
