Would it achieve something that is not possible today?

Subject: Positioned elements

Is you plan to add ability to position element relatively to its parent
NOT to its position in normal flow (relative)
NOT to its containing block (absolute)

<div style="position: absolute; left: 50px; top: 150px; border: 1px solid red;">
<table border=1><tr>
  <td>HELLO</td><td><div style="position: absolute; left:40px; top:12px; background: red;">aa</div></td>
  <td>HELLO</td><td>HELLO<select style="position: parent; left:0px; top:0px; background: blue;"></select></td>

So its look like this:

And NOT:
like in 'relative' positioning

And NOT:
like in 'absolute' positioning
