Separate dimensions on any property with more than one value

PLEASE institute separate dimensions on all properties that have more than one value. Like Anchor Point, Scale, and most importantly, Orientation. when the camera tracker gives a solution i need the ability to smooth out and correct issues that are always there. separating the position dimensions helps greatly, but the Orientation is 3 axises that are all grouped together and makes correcting rotational issues in the graph editor a total pain.

For orientation that is unlikely to happen due to how this function works and if you use it for animation, you're basically using the wrong kind of rotation. the old Euler vs. Quarternion thing. We can agree, though, that basically any property with more than one channel should be separable.

Then the camera tracker needs to place it's rotational key frames in the rotation parameters. the fact that it doesn't is completely asinine to me. After 25 years of using After Effects I have yet to see an explanation as to why orientation is the main rotational parameter that is affected by the rotation tool and not ... rotation.

Orientation should be scrapped completely from the animation parameters. Rotation is the only logical and valid method. Orientation is good for Auto Orientate but useless for manual animating. It flips when going over 360 degrees which yields useless graphs etc.
