Yes, Elle, I think you got it. :)
If I understand what you mean by "original layer", I don't need to see the

You can currently kinda get around this by setting the "Image opacity" in
the Tool options palate for unified transform tool to less than 100%.
Unfortunately, unless you also change the "Opacity" field in the layer
palate, the untransformed layer B is still in the way.
Thus my proposal:
hide/remove the untransformed version of layer B while the user is
transforming it, and set the default "Image opacity" for the transform tool
to 50% by default.
This would get layer B out of the way, and let you see translucently a bit
of what is under the transformation preview as well (layer A).
