How can I use a Custom Axis pivot with my Rotation tool?

Hey guys,

Does anyone know if it is possible to use an objects Custom Axis i.e. Move Tool Settings > Custom Axis > Set to Face for the Rotate tool? ...and even perhaps the Scale!

Example: I have a cube, it has been translated in 3d space. It has had it's transforms frozen so there is no longer any relationship to origin or the grid. I then set a custom axis based on a selected face. How can I then rotate my object around one of these axises?

There doesn't seem to be any downstream relationships with the Move Tools > Custom Axis modifier and any of the other transform tools i.e. Rotate and Scale!

Any suggestions would be much appreciated

Cheers
Nick.
