Ok, the update for the Edit frame "Wheel mode" is looking good. Instead of only being able to grab on to the wheel itself, in the next beta in the Top/Front/Right views, you will be able to grab on to a snap reference point as the starting point of the rotation drag.

This allows for some precision rotation operations that you would have previously needed to do with the Rotate command, like this:

Another example using a reference point and also Ctrl to make copies:

So that should help to cover some more kinds of rotation cases with the "in viewport" tools without needing to go over and fire up the Transform/Rotate command.
