The RadDocking control doesn't support using a custom compass. You could only style it. We schedule some major changes of the RadDocking control, including using of RadDragAndDropManager. This will allow you easily to accomplish your scenario. But this won't be done until Q1 2011.
Please do not hesitate to contact us if you require any further information.
