Please show Out of Pegs size percentage, angle and position

It would be very helpful to see detailed info for out of pegs transformations - this would make many processes much easier and faster...

please can you give a concrete exemple of use of such informations (It makes sense, but I'm just curious !)

where would like to read the informations ? il the bottom info bar ?

One of the very common examples - if I have a character moving in perspective, and I need to insert an inbetween on, let's say - 1/3 or 1/2, or whatever position, so I need to know, at least approximate - the resize percentage. If there is rotation at the same time - I would want to know how much I rotate. Another example if I have a similar situation but with very subtle increments - let's say a character moves in perspective very very slow, and I need to inbetween tiny changes, it's really difficult to adjust those out of pegs now. especially if a character is small, and there is no way to set the center point or to have a rotation and transformation handles just available at your zoom level - I need to go far to the edge of the frame just to do something that I cannot even see, zoom in, check, go back, manipulate, zoom in again (I think this request for custom rotation center and available handles was done already before), and eventually after many manipulations, I even forget what did I actually manipulate at all. Often after manipulating one peg, I go to manipulate the other, then I go back to adjust the previous, but I have to guess again... This information is kind of a supplement to the other request about improving the out-of-pegs manipulation - I don't find it right now, but I know it was done.
UPD.: another example - if I already have transformed a frame, and after some time I go back to it and want to, let say, resize it back to 100% but leave the rotation - it's impossible, since I have no way to know how much to resize...

About where to see this info... hmm - good question. It should display instantly when manipulating the frame, maybe in the Ligh Table top bar (it's empty anyway), or in this info bar below the Timeline. And then on hovering with mouse above the out-of-pegs switch it could show info for each of them in the same place... What others think?

UPD: one more reason - if I clear previous off-pegs transformations, and later want to apply the same, or adjusted accordingly, there is no way to know it
