transformations should  apply as smart filter on smart objects, instead of permanent changes. other option would be to give us a reset button.

Hi Tom,

Transforms are already non-destructive, like Smart Filters. Are you simply asking to for a reset to the file's original bounds?

Speaking of which... how can I interpret perspective values in AM code? What are they meaning? It is missing piece in my "Undeform" script.

I'd have to ask Tom Ruark, but he's currently out.

Jeffrey, yes. I worded that poorly as I was in the middle of work.

While it is true that a transform on a smart object isn't destructive, it's next to impossible to revert back to it's original state because there's no reset as you said (no actual filter layer being applied to the object in layers panel).
