Each fragment is essentially its own http request (at least, that's a 
reasonable way to think about it.) It could be loaded as its own page. 
The downside is that means you can't share an $action between fragments.

I was wanting to fix it so that a paged collection (terminology?) inside a region didn't bounce the screen around depending on what it rendered in a table.   How/would I for example leverage (CSS) DIV's ?  I've done this a little the long-hand way before... not sure on best practice with Jifty here, and would appreciate some pointers.

That really does just sound like pretty vanilla CSS. There's nothing 
jifty-specific there.
