I was using an image as a reference and then decided that I wanted to use it as a tracing layer.

I made the ref image a tracing layer which worked as expected.

However, it did make me think that it would be much more intuitive to be able to handle the tracing layer in the same way as a reference image in regards to moving, scaling and positioning.

This led me to wonder that perhaps it would be great to be able to use a reference image as a temporary tracing layer. Much like the various modes offered by the stencils.

E.g. position reference image, scale and rotate then change its mode so it functions as a tracing image.
