I think this is because there is a difference between tools (like editor, 
painter, inspector,..) and other morphs when it comes to handling drop events.  
Tools get dropped or picked up implicitly in a drag or drop operation only in 
a world or flap and not on their submorphs. For instance, dropping a inspector 
tool in a playfield does not necessarily imply an embed op.

We could add a isTool method to Morph (false) and override it in tool Morphs 
(true) to decide if the drop target should be a submorph, a flap or a world.
