Not in 0.7 out-of-the box. However, it would be relatively easy to 
implment and we would be happy to help (via the dev list).

It is also worth noting that we are working on a new skinning system 
(currently moving from a prototype to a first implementation) that 
enables this kind of granularity in page make-up. However, it is pure 
dev stuff in trunk. If this is a production site and you don't want to 
play with moving tartgets then adding this to the existing skins would 
be a better approach for now.

Again, not out of the box, but relatively easy to add if you have the 

See you on the dev list ;-)
