I've been thinking a little, and I'm wondering whether using a kind of guide would work here. The guide would listen to the recording system, so it gets all the stroke information and then place the result somewhere. We'd be able to drag mirroring, warping, rotating guides onto the canvas, move them -- it might a even easier for the user to understand than transformation layers.
