I'm not sure that's possible - different parts are often on a different grid (2mm vs 100 mil, for example), or are on a really fine grid (like a .5 mm pitch smd) and some, like dsub mini connectors seem to not be on any discernable grid at all.

Yes, and of course, this complicates the ability to route when the minimum spacing is 8 mil.

What I had in mind, was aligning the "0,0" of the part directly on a grid intersection.
