If I can think of it, someone probably already did code it.
yep, all these things exist already and are called Datum objects. They come with the PartDesign workbench, although they should be the basic building blocks for all FreeCAD designs, and what you want to use is their mapping mode. What you are asking for here is not a feature request — it exists — but an UI/UX update to group these existing features differently.
And I agree with you, these very powerful features are mostly unknown and hidden. For no reason I can think of.
