I guess I have a rough understanding of the controls MPart, MPartStack and MPartSashContainer.

But what are MInputPart and MArea?

Furthermore, although it does not belong to contols: What are shared elements?

MInputPart:
-----------
Will in future act as something similar to editors and can hold an URL
to the edited resource.


MArea:
------
Is what you currently see constructed when you split your editor-area so
it is a specialized MPartSashContainer


Shared Elements:
----------------
Are used to e.g make the same "Package Explorer"-Part instance shown in
the Plugin-Development and Java-Development perspective. They are then
instead of referenced directly in the MPartStack, MPartSashContainer
only referenced through an MPlaceholder, ... . E.g. the Editor-Area you
see in Eclipse 4.x is also a shared element.

I admit that they are quite strange and a very advanced concept because
through them we suddenly have links in our UI-Model.
