Speaking of looks, when I saw the design mockup for what the tool overlay may look like ( and what regions you click on to do what kind of transform - my first immediate impression was "too many handles!"  Recipe for misclicks, especially the way scale and perspective handles are inset/outset on the same corners.  I'm personally partial to Inkscape's method of displaying transform handles - simply click on the selection repeatedly and it cycles through which set of handles (scaling, shear/rotate) it shows the user.
