3d Rotate - reset

Question

I think it'd be fabulous to be able to, say, option-click on the OIP Rotate 3D and have its action become Un-Rotate 3D.

There is the menu command Modify>Unrotate 3d Objects which you may not be aware of.....

Yep, I was aware of that menu item, whole idea is to not to have to go to the menu. Of course as I went to the menu for that command. I learned that there is already a useful keystroke command which works perfectly well, yet, as I need to do this relatively infrequently, the keystroke does not stick mentally, and as I regularly look to the OIP for object properties, such as rotation, I'm hoping that the already existing button could be modified to unrotate. Deploying something like OPT-Click on the MacOS is already standard behavior.

How about instead, the addition of x,y,z axis rotate angle fields which may be viewed/edited for all graphic objects and groups?

I'm not adverse. But to be more clear, I'd also like to see a rotation field for all 2D objects and groups as well, which effectively rotates the object's pane by some angle prior to being drawn, and thereby preserving it's local delta-x delta-y parametric dimensioning.  (i.e. I'd like to be able to group three squares in a horizontal line, rotate the group by 45degrees, and then double the delta-x dimension of the group, and end up with a diagonal line of 3 rotated rectangles being twice as wide as high; in effect treating the initial rectangular group boundary as a rectangular object which may be rotated and scaled just like a rectangle objects may be.)

And would really like to see object info be fully parameterized for all graphic objects, something like:
