My personal annoyance with this occurs when I float a bit of a mostly
transparent layer to adjust it that does not vary much in color and try to
make it smaller. It can become VERY difficult to see where you are with your
transform at any given moment very quick. Sample. Make a blue blot, not
uniform in shape. Select and float it. Now make it smaller so it is placed in a
manner you like that may be dependent on the layer below or rest of the image.
You wont even see the borders of your preview because they are the same color.

I personally am in favor of this. It would make using transform tools both
easier and more intuitive.
