Would this be useful?
This would be a gamechanger for me, and i would purchase vordio just for this!
Currently it is a complete time waster trying to re position spatial audio again, after the video has been rotated..
The perspective is always changed in the video edit, and all my intricate spatial locking goes to waste.
Afterwards i have to automate by eye, ear, and SPL power map.If i am lucky (next to never) I have access to the NLE or the editor tells me what they have done. Then i have idea where to start. Either way it takes ages, and there is no automated process to do this in any DAW/NLE. I searched believe me 🙃

You would get loads of the spatial audio community on board with this function alone!
If this could be done for Premier too, you would get them all! 😉

I use higher order plugins, not the atk, but any automation can be reassigned in reaper anyway. Even easier if its labelled...
This is even useful for vbap/dbap plugs that allow rotation too.. Which i sometimes use for discreet channel based installations.

Quite excited at the prospect!
