I want to suggest a little improvement: the possibility to open a part from an assembly with the same orientation that this part has in the assembly.
It is simply very useful in each kind of situation.

There isn't "a use case" because it would be useful everyday in avery kind of sector.

This would be extremely useful when working with symmetrical parts.  I can't count how many times I, or someone I work with, adds an extrude to the wrong end/ side of a part.  This would also aid in making sure the parts are added in a model the same way in anticipation of a design change down the line.
