composite actor output ports cannot be added to reports
If I have a composite actor with an output port, I cannot add that output port to the report design template. I can add the output port that feeds the composite actor's output port. See attached workflow for an example.

while inconvenient, it sounds like you can still get the Token that passes through this port. sort of a "work around" but better than not being able to report on it at all.
I would like to know: a) why the port cannot be added to the design template; b) if we get past that if provenance actually keeps track of that port (and it's tokens) as we need it to.

Did some more investigation:
-we can allow CompositeActor ports to be added to the report layout, but provenance isn't recording those tokens.
-if provenance records them, there's a line in ReportDesignerPanel that we can uncomment to allow dropping of those ports onto the layout
-in the meantime it's safe to "report on" either the port that feeds the CompositeActor port or the port that sinks that CompositeActor port
