Rotation affects offset direction

When a rotation is applied to a symbol, the offset is no longer orthogonal, but along rotated axes. Keeping it orthogonal seems a more sound choice to me.

Please describe me your use case. For me the current handling seems correct: imagine that you have a symbol composed of several layers, some of them having an offset. When I start rotating the whole symbol, the offset direction must be rotated too - otherwise the symbol appearance would break. Or do you mean something else?
