Justin has filed a bug for you on that one. We'll try to get it fixed  
soon for you.

As it stands today, there's no way to do this. I think in most cases,  
the best interaction for users allows them to move the avatar wherever  
they want, but ensuring the drop indicator correctly shows them where  
it will land. At least for common drag and drop scenarios, putting a  
hard stop on where users can drag will be confusing.

If it's something you need to do now, you might be able to cook up a  
solution using an iFrame, but it may present accessibility problems.  
If it's a feature you think we should add, we can definitely file an  
feature request for it.

Hope this helps,
