In some houses (especially Japanese ones) and most conference centers, sliding doors are used to rearrange rooms. By opening or closing the doors a new space and thus a new context is created.
Online the same thing happens in portals/portlets and dashboards. However, usually it is predefined and user interaction with regards to the actual framing is very limited.
I'm suggesting to give the user/visitor more options in this respect. A bit similar to taking a picture, where you determine the composition next to the actual subject. I mentioned some options in a previous entry 'Can you take a picture?'.
