A lot of things like package design in Photoshop could be made a lot easier if you had the ability to lock the layerstyles orientation and size to the layer. When you rotate a layer in photoshop you have to manually rotate the shadows every time.

My suggestions would be:

1 - Option in the layerstyles to lock the shadow to the layer like it's merged so you can scale and rotate them with the layer in one transform.
2 - Option in free transform mode to rotate and/or scale the layerstyles as well.

Free transform can't generally scale the layer styles because you can scale non-uniformly (or perspective, or skew), and styles can't match that.
