Add a CreateCellInstance method to place a Cell from a Cell Library

There is no way in .NET to place a new cell instance by reading a cell definition from a cell library.

When creating a new cell instance, there is a lot of unseen work involved in copying a cell definition.  In addition to the graphic elements, there may also be tags or Item Types.  For example, tag definitions are extracted from a cell model and attached to the cell instance.  Symbology must be synchronised between the cell library and the DGN model where the cell instance is created.

C++ programmers can use the MDL function mdlCell_getElmDscr().  It would be great to have a true C++ method, and it would be even better to have any kind of .NET method.
