I posted this on the Avid Forum already but think it might be more of a Boris Continuum Complete solution.

There has got to be some way to make a Mask (matte) on a layer then add a DVE move to it so that only the masked layer moves and not all of the layers underneath.

Using Avid Adrenaline 2.4 w/ Boris Continuum Complete3 and Sapphire V2.

First I tried the standard Animatte plus 3D Warp -- of course no luck.
Then I tried Animatte plus Boris DVE but for some reason the Boris still treats the Animatte as whole frame (ie it manipulates all underlying frames).

The solution would seem to be some sort of Boris Matte plus a Boris DVE. Does anyone know of a solution for this problem? PS I need to use some sort of matte cutout to precisely pick the area I need to key out (so luma key or chroma key would not work).

How about tracking what you're trying to mask and then using that track data with the pixel chooser or the matte material (if it was imported)?
