    @Michael - The Transform effect is one of the work arounds, like parenting a layer to a null. But it doesn't do proper concatenation.

    If you change the anchor point of a layer using the normal transform controls, then apply a Transform effect and change any of the parameters, the relative anchor point becomes disconnected. The effect's anchor will still default to the center of your comp size, but meanwhile you've moved the layer itself around so the actual layer's anchor point is somewhere else. So if you start rotating using the Transform control, it will rotate from a different anchor point.

    Yes, you can always link the two values with an expression but now things are getting a little complex.

    What I'm asking for is simply the ability to add more instances of each transform parameter, by clicking a "+" button next to each one, maybe. Then no matter how you transform a layer you only have one anchor point and all the math is done as if you are only changing one parameter. But this would allow the ability to express to the values of any of those instances, for example, in case there is some reason you need to link to the values of one animation before the second instance takes over.

    It would be useful to be able to invoke multiple instances of all the normal transform controls: Position, Scale, Rotation and Anchor Point.

    Say a layer has had a motion tracker applied to Pos, Scale, Rot. So that there are keyframes on every frame. But you decide you need to nudge the layer slightly here and there. You don't want to change it on a frame by frame basis, so one current workaround is to parent that layer to a null and add new keyframes to the null. Or you can add a Transform effect and adjust things there. But this adds complexity to the comp.

    Instead, how about the ability to add a new INSTANCE of the position parameter. It would appear below the currently keyframed Position parameter and could be keyframed as an additional transform.

    For another example, let's say a layer is scaled down to 50%. You could add a new Scale instance and enter "200%" as a value. This would now scale the image back to its original 100% scale. (50%*200%=100%). BUT - here's the key - the image would then show no signs of bicubic interpolation or any kind of image degradation. It would be a 1:1 concatenation. Concatenation of values for all the instance parameters would be an absolute must.
