My bad, with the current solution you indeed need geometry to base the
orientation on - sorry for any confusion. I can see the handyness of freely
translating the pivot point, too, but that's what the 3D cursor is supposed
to be used for. Vanilla 3D cursor is clunky, admittedly...
In Modo they use a combination of pivot point and orientation which they
call "action center" and this combo is stored as a preset. Could be
interesting to explore, although I think I like being able to set both
