Well perhaps you can put forward a use case for having action flowables inside
containers. I think the original intention for avoiding them in flowable groups
was to avoid the situations where the actions voided the intentions of the
group. That may have been true at the point when that coding was done, but
perhaps new classes have been created which do have valid usages.

I think the original intent was to prevent naive users from doing strange things
and shooting themselves in the foot.

Perhaps we should actually adopt more of "we're all adults" policy and let the
foot shooting go through.
