geometry 50%:50% does work as expected, but I'd have a different
suggestion (don't know how this fits into it at all:)

setting xineramascreen to screen n (n >= 0), as there's no way to tell
the window manager to do automatic placement on a certain screen, should
automatically have the old behavior, even if it means windows are
positioned in the center of the screen.

xineramascreen=-1 has now the same effect as if no xineramascreen is
given, b/c the screen is automatically positioned where the cursor is
