Lockable Anchor Points

I hope others can second this, but we need lockable anchor points. So that specific images can have custom anchor points when rotating to make it faster. Say I have a spotlight, or someone's arm, etc. I could save my assets as a PSD and they would always rotate from the part that makes most sense for that item. I feel like this should have been in photoshop years ago. 

In transform mode: Option + click makes a select anchor point. 

If right-click locked to layer, or command + option + click would select and lock anchor point, then photoshop would all of a sudden save me several hours per week. No joke. 

What would be most ideal, is to have customizeable anchor points as an option so that say you have a smiley face emoji in photoshop, you can have Anchor point 1 locked to center, anchor point 2 locked to left eye, and anchor point 3 locked to right eye for easy switching and rotating. Then say when rotating you can hold numbers like 1 and rotate and it would rotate from that anchor point, 2 does anchor point 2, etc. (could show up as an effect does for a smart object layer. (just below it)). 

The lack of this feature probably lost me 12 hours of time on a recent project, and I would use this every single project that I have. 

Please someone on the dev team reply to me.
