@Ryosuke - I do not have a concrete proposal but would be interested in helping to work one out. I had idly considered a content attribute but think that specifying an element (perhaps via a function called setDragElement()) would be a simple implementation.
@Daniel - I had thought that was possible but in my testing I was not able to get it to work. I had tried referencing an existing element as well as creating a new element but neither were visible while dragging [in Chrome].
