I know there is no such feature in AI, but I'm about to find any way to doing so.
In Photoshop, user can "Link" objects to each other by selecting multiple objects and select "Link" through layers panel right click menu or layers panel options drop down.
- This feature bounds objects transformation (scale, move, rotate) to each other, even if they in different groups (after linking, a chain icon appears at right-most part of each layer title in layers panel).
I'd though about a script, plugin, effect or procedure to doing the same in AI.
** * It should Link objects to each other, then they can move, rotate and scale with each other, and this feature should hold the link between objects even if they are in different layers, clip masks or groups.**
Below, a Photoshop document displays the purpose of "Link", you can see arm and its shadow linked, while not grouped and shadow preserves its own clipping mask:
