ContainerID for display devices?

I'm trying to get a product which includes both a display device and a USB input device to group together properly in Devices and Printers. I've found the documentation at WHDC, specifically the document about ContainerID (http://www.microsoft.com/whdc/device/deviceexperience/containerids.mspx), but there is no mention of a method to specify a ContainerID for a display. It seems like it should be possible for two devnodes that are connected through different bus drivers to be associated; the included example is a printer that connects via USB or UPnP.
