In sequence diagrams, I would like to be able to make collections of other participant types (Database, Actor, Control, etc.). Currently you can only create collections of square boxes.

It would be great if we could just use the plural form of a participant.

Ex:

Single ParticipantCollecton of Participant
actoractors
boundaryboundaries
etc.etc.

You could simulate it with shadowing

I think plurality is something that should be looked at across the board.

I am with OP on this!
