For instance like an axis of revolution for revolve. It saves you to do a revolving axis separate feature.
1) I always place my sketches for a revolve at the center of rotation, such that the rotation axis is confounded with X, Y or Z. So I don't need to specify an extra axis. If you do revolves of sketches randomly placed in 3D then you're probably doing something else wrong
2) the sketcher is one of FreeCAD's main strength, on par with the big guns (Catia, SolidWorks, NX, ...): it's powerful, practical, stable. Therefore, messing with it must have a very strong reason, and this is not one of it
3) if it was all for free, why not, but in order to merge it a PR must be prepared, reviewed, tested, then modified again, re-tested ... how much of your own time and/or money are you willing to pay to get this feature merged ?
So yes. That would be a good feature.
So no, it will not be merged, I take the bets (and I will oppose it if the question arises). realthunder
, your branch has many wonderful goodies, please don't waste your valuable time on such trivialities.
