Placement can be more flexible than I think?

Hello,

I'm trying to use placement in a way that it looks it was not designed for. Can you confirm me please that what I want is not possible?

I see that no matter which parts I combine in a type, when I set the position of the shapes related to parts in placement it is not enough to be sure where all the elements of the content type are going to be rendered. So I need to also explicitly set where I want the fields. I mean parts and fields use independent position, no matter if a field comes into a concrete part or another when we talk about how placement works.
In certain scenarios I would like to set wrapper for a part in the placement and inside this wrapper I would like to see rendered the part and its fields. So in that scenarios the position of the fields will be directly related to the parent part in which they are included.
Is it possible?

Well I have seen what I'm asking is indeed is a very popular feature asked in 2012
