Just a general comment, not opinion on the proposed functionality.
I see many, adding geometry to sketches that would (in many cases) create less cluttered and easier to constrain sketches if the feature (i.e. hole, slot, etc.) were left to subsequent mirror operations. There are of course times when the shape being designed needs to be symmetric about something (axis, other geometry, etc.). In the example given (two obrounds at an angle symmetric about an axis), I'd sketch and constrain one, then pocket and mirror. Thus saving a several constraints. (Note: not knowing what the rest of the sketch looks like, I may do it differently.)
Now it may be that it's just my way of thinking out what needs to be sketched and modeled. But, I tend to like to keep my sketches as simple as possible.
Of course, YMMV, as they say.
