LIGHTROOM Custom Watermark Location?!

Is there a way to be able to drag my watermark to anywhere on my picture, instead of having to select "predefined" areas for it to go? I understand you can select the corners, and use the "slider bar" and move it where you want, but it isn't enough.

I agree with Brad here would be awesome to be able to place a "MARKER" in the developer mode where the water must be placed and in watermark configure, choose the "MARKER" as user defined position for the watermark to be placed on the image!

I suggest-
Create your watermark as an Identity Plate! (Text or a Graphic)
Identity Plates can be placed anywhere on the image or image border.

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)
