I will need some essential scenarios for that, beyond the obvious

more complicated and the tool(s) should not end up as 2-trick pony(s).

A frequent use case is aligning two objects on two different layers, which involves simultaneous scale and rotation of one of the objects... And where you discover quickly why scaling and rotation should both have an arbitrary (and identical) center.

In current Gimp the only practical way of doing this is to use the exact-aligner script (because every rotation/scaling introduces some blur so you want to do it in one single operation, so step-wise scale/rotate is out of the question).
