Why not supporting percentage for size and position for intraweb components !!??
i think it is not difficult (just adding new property for unit px/%)

i have a 150 forms and frames system, and except for (sometimes) the grids columns, i never needed it.
for what components and\or situations do you need it?

Its not that simple because of nesting in the DOM and how CSS works. The
% of "what" varies and would often be unpredictable.

No. It is not that simple. You are thinking in very simplistic terms.
Even in straight HTML, % is far from straightforward and in the complex
HTML emitted by IW including controls etc, its even far more complex.

it is highly needed
i am new to web development but you can ask all web developers, they use it too much
as example to make your web app size responsive without writing tooo much code
suppose you like your app to work in different devices pc/ipad ...

then you can use Bootstrap for intraweb called IWBootstrap
it's not a package written by AToZed, but it's really good.
