"Component integration" in a pattern (Was: "A Suggestion for design pattern format in the DPL")

 Hi Daphne.

This morning I talked to Anastasia to get her opinion about adding a section
to the design pattern that describes what an integrator must do to make a
seamless integration of the design pattern (i.e. highlighting of uploaded
files after the Uploader is dismissed - the highlighting isn't part of the
component, but is important to the pattern).

She made an excellent suggestion: put this "integration" content as part of
the "How" section and then indicate visually which points are covered by the
Fluid Component and which points need to be done by the integrator.

This makes sense. What do you think?

- Jonathan.
