That's what I want too. The reason I want it is that I really want to 
align blocks of text not their containing frames. I can reposition the 
elements on the page using the align and distribute tool which you can 
find in the windows menu. When the area of the text frame closely 
matches the area of the text that tool can be used to position the 
frames and the text ends up in the right spot too.
