I agree that these modifications are important features, but I would not
exactly say that they belong to a "viewer". IMO that functionaly could be
part of the "detached" read-write part.
Concerning the image viewer: Zooming and rotation are attributes of the
display and belong into a viewer. Resizing (in terms of interpolation/
resampling), cropping, and rotation operations which change the original file
are clearly no "viewer" features.
Some sort of exception would be a lossless change of image orientation, which
is not really changing the file from a users POV, but simply its presentation
(just permanently, in contrast to the zooming etc.). Technically, this can
be seen as the same kind of metadata like a file's comment or tags
(keywords, ...) in contrast to the perceived file content.

Which point does that prove (and how)?
