What a great wish! As much as I have fought with this issue, this would be a huge aid.
just echoing karl's sentiments. that would be a fantastic improvement. i would also go as far as saying that
anchor points for all elements that use them - not just text-based elements - use a similar method: objects, windows, doors, etc . . .
at present editable hotspots are distinguished by colour and shape. something similar (different colour, different shape) would be the solution, no?
maybe right-clicking on them gives us a new pet palette command that would allow an easier 're-anchoring' method . . ? or maybe i'm going too far . . . ?
