I had earlier suggested using pseudo parent containers to move and group  
objets to place anywhere in layout:
http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/www-style/2005Apr/0058.html .

Move-to is *at best* a half-hearted attempt to moving things around, and I  
don't know how it could be useful without total freedom. But there you  
have it in css3, it is obvious it somehow got the liking of the working  
group, which still amazes me.
