Yeah, but it all gets too complicated for my taste.
I would just live with the fact that -margins- is not
inteded to do what you want it to do, and instead
do it manually.

However, if you want to stick to the -margins- route,
here is a solution:

*--------- begin example --------
sysuse auto, clear

// create negative values
sum mpg , detail
replace mpg = mpg - r(p50)

// mpgid has a separate positive integers
// value for each value of mpg
egen mpgid = group(mpg), label

reg price c.mpg##c.mpg
margins, dydx(mpg) over(mpgid)

// legend:
label list mpgid
*---------- end example ----------

Hope this helps,
Maarten
