When fixing this, let's also make sure it can be added via double-click. We took some pains to make sure everything in 2.x could be added by double-click, but this and the new Staff Type Change element are not handled.

I've marked this critical because the feature is pretty useless as it, so it seems. But it's fine by me to simply disable it (remove the palette element for now).
