Naming TransformAble2

Are there also some control transformations - personal preferences 
regarding keyboard navigation, size and spacing of input field or 
buttons (independent of the rest of the display) for people with 
imprecise pointing, etc.

If so I think we should not limit the name to 'display,' even if we 
are not enabling these transformations  in this round.
