Custom Facets in Visualforce Components

Development (Apex, LWC & VF)

Several standard Visualforce components allow for facets, such as "header" and "footer", to be inserted into their component bodies at specified locations --- much like Visualforce templates allow for apex:define sections to be included with the apex:insert tag.

Why can't our custom Visualforce components have custom facets?  This would make Components dramatically more useful, combining the usefulness of the apex:insert tag available with VF templates and merging it with the power of Components. It's extremely limiting to be only able to insert ONE apex:componentBody tag into the body of your Component. We could, instead, have the following:

<apex:component controller="myController">

<apex:insert facet="teaser">
<apex:insert facet="mainContent">
Example of header, footer facets for apex:column component
