As a matter of fact the majority of render engines don't have this feature, even high-end professional systems like Vray or Mental Ray. There are of course some renderers that do allow this, but it would require a good amount of development time. We do have hopes to include it in the future, but for the moment it is not a focus of development.If you're having problems rendering an image due to crashes, power outages, etc. I suggest trying to render in crops, which will finish sooner and thus save your "progress". You can then stitch the crops together later, though this is of course an added step. It's the best solution for now...- Oshyan

My problem with rendering crops is that there is still an issue with mismatch coloration on crops. It seems that the GI changes for each calculated crop section, so the overall coloration of individual crops don't match. When you stitch them together, the colors don't always match up and that requires a lot of time doing color correction matching on each crop in postwork. On top of that, since color matching isn't always perfect, it requires additional hand clone-tool touch up in the Gimp. For right now, rendering the image all at once saves that time with post work.
