/**
 * Compares approaches how to append a custom area at the end of
 * a panel built with the DefaultFormBuilder:<ol>
 * <li> using two custom rows to align the leading label,
 * <li> using a single custom row with label on top,
 * <li> using a separator.
 * </ol>
 * These differ in the position of the leading 'Feedback" label,
 * and in turn in the alignment of font baselines between label
 * and the text area.
