Lightroom: Adding more range to watermark movement

I appear to be the first person to have a problem with the current Lightroom watermarking, so I was pointed here to make it a feature request?I have images on which I need to place a small signature watermark. With the current range of horizontal and vertical movement I am unable to place the watermark where I would like to have it. From any corner, I cannot move the watermark to where I'd like it. The center positions don't have nearly enough range to be useful. Is there any way to reasonably (and creating a whole bunch of watermarks with differing empty space isn't reasonable) significantly increase the range of movement for each corner watermark so I can place it ANYWHERE in the quadrant?

Completely agree. It is very irritating.

Workflow could be like this:

1. Select location in image to place watermark (with "watermark" tool?)
2. Go to next image - again mark preferred location or go tonex image without marking.
and so on

On export watermark is either placed to location if it is defined for an image, or to default location if custom location for a photo is not defined
Locations could be copied/synced as any other adjustment (e.g. synced between virtual copies, if needed)
