It would be good to be able to reproject the entered reference points before creating the world file. Like this, reference coordinates in WGS84 taken by GPS could be converted to a local coordinate system (which would then also be the coordinate system of the referenced image).

it is (QGIS 2.13) possible to change the target SRS for final georeferencing. But when you modify it when you already have some georeferencing points, their coordinates aren't translated to the news SRS.

What we need to change is when the target SRS is modified, the GCP points should be re-projected on the fly.
