>From Apple's "Optimizing Audio Unit User Experience in Logic Studio"

"For even better user interface integration, custom Audio Unit Views should
refrain from using overlay windows and from opening sheets or auxiliary
windows other than for file browsing. All user interface elements should be
presented inside the root Audio Unit View by laying out its content
dynamically and resizing as necessary. The host window listens to size
change notifications and will adapt automatically."
