One scenario would be the concept of Picture in Picture. Where I have an
animation
in one area of the screen, and another in the background. Based on user
input, It
would be nice to swap the animations, i.e. target another region. It might
also be nice
to re-position the smaller region, to location within the larger region.

I would be able to define elements with relative coordinates, i.e.
percentages, to
accomodate the region location and size differences.

I may be able to establish a group and move the whole group, but I can't
specify the
layout relative to other regions. Or can I? I don't know that viewports
allow for such
behavior. This behavior seems simple, modeled in SMIL.

Any thoughts or suggestions?
Thanks.

Not that I know of. Do you have a use case?

Here is a good place, and the spec ought to be updated in the close future.
