New ASP.Net Tag - Can DW stretch to support the <asp:content> tag? - OR - Oh my long lost love DW, please don't become essentially useless to me.

Dreamweaver has no support for asp.net 2, and won't for a long time it's looking like.
But, it SEEMS as though the authors of this often times awesome piece of software intended for it to be extendable, well, I wonder if when I actually need this extendibility it will work. I apologize if I come off as a bit of a punk but I've been a hyper loyal dreamweaver evangelist since version 1.2 and it just annoys and pisses me off to no end what has recently become of what was once my favorite piece of software. But I digress.
What I'd lke to do is add support for the asp.net 2 content panel, the tag used by pages which inherit from a master page, one of the cornerstone new features of asp.net 2.
I don't want much, as I see it anyway, I just want DW to treat the asp:Content tag as if it were a asp:Panel tag. Let me put html elements and asp controls in it, treating it as a container, and have the design view allow me to edit elements inside the asp:Content control, like it does with the asp:Panel control.
I tried to do this, messing around with the config folder, but to no avail. Does anybody know if and how this can happen?
