Photoshop: change starting orientation of transform tool box

I want to perform transformations on a layer which is not oriented the same way as my canvas. the transform rectangle aligns with the canvas which isn't good for doing certain transformations (scale, perspective, etc) on an oddly angled layer. I want a way to reorient the starting orientation of the transform tool so it matches my layer, not the canvas.

this post is asking about the same functionality, and they give a good visual example of why it is a problem now.

You can do this with shapes and smart objects. Anything that is pixel-based is ambiguous.
