Leaders in custom families

I would like to see a control point that can be manipulated in the family editor that sets where leaders snap to.  I have a circular grille tag with a text box below it.  See attached pic.  Since the text box has to be so much bigger than the actual circle to avoid word wrapping the leader leaves a space that is undesirable.

Absolutely! Our Room Number/Name Tags are like this as well, and since we don't connect leaders from the top or bottom of the Tag, they look quite stupid with that gap. I had to draw a horizontal line in in the Tag Family on both sides to account for this gap. Now, there are three Types in the Tag Family: "No Leader", "Right Leader", "Left Leader", each with "Yes/No" parameters controlling the visibility of these added lines.
