Yes. It's definitely possible; actually, a "panel" is a portlet assignment 
in its own right – it just happens to use the equivalent of a "NullAddForm" 
– i.e. you click and its immediately added.

That said, the idea is that you can register your own panel layouts.

A panel layout is just a template, a title and a "batch" parameter which 
tells the renderer how many portlets to render at a time for a given panel. 
Currently, it's coded right into the package – in Python code – but it 
needs to be extensible somehow; probably via a GenericSetup-profile, e.g.
