Hi!
I'm just wondering, why do we need to use an attribute [AvailableZone] on items ?
In templates project, there are a few items with this attribute.

But in fact, we can get all available at the moment zones from the page controls looking for DroppableZone (or any other Zone) control.

You're absolutely right.

They were implemented before there was any drag and drop and I needed a way of specifying which zones you could add stuff to (the zones button when editing a page). Still I do like the idea of defining zones on the content item as a way to decouple it from presentation.
