This is important in our world. not sure if I follow exactly what the issues are, but I can tell you what users need.
But first of all, the paint tools seem to be badly broken here in 8.1.6
if I draw an oval it , appears but selects the entire card rect as the enclosing rect/container instead of the actual oval itself.
Attempting bring the area "down" to edge of the Oval, only causes it to shrink
Test was going to be: make two separate oval objects on the card, group and test the paint bucket, I can't even do that today.
But here goes with our requirements:
if I have a coloring book and we have a mouse, an apple and a car. inside the frame/card/coloring area.
in terms of handling the whole UX from the back end, I most certainly would want to be able to treat these with commands that talk to a group.
hide grp "coloringImage "
or (progressively reveals elements)
show img 3 of grp "coloringImage"
Then, from the "front user end" when the little girl chooses a color and the bucket tool, and wants to dump the color "pink" into the mouse's body (closed path bit map b/w outline) We need that to work, just like that. It fills the mouse only, and has no awareness of the containing group. In fact I can't even imagine a use case where you would want paint tools to address the whole canvas containing the group.
Disclaimer: I don't follow well, perhaps this is the way it works, but can't test today because appears broken in 8.1.6

I think that drawing on a grouped image should be standard.
