So would be the expression of the origin. That means that we have to multiply the origin of scale (and for rotate as well) with the inverse of all previous transformations for the current element. Is it that what you mean Rik?

Your transform list confused me, but I'll just say that what Shane
wants is for the origins to work "independently", so that you don't
have to think about the fact that t/s/r all exist and might apply when
you're just trying to write one of them.  Whatever that implies for
ordering of the translates used for origin hacks, that's what we want.
