Consider making an "assign axes" plugin

It might be nice to have a "assign axes" plugin that lets users specify the type of each axis. This could be handy if imported data came in incorrectly (no matter the source). The user could then fix bad datasets. Implementation would be simple. Just have to decide if we want to give the user this much power.

If its not clear:

Imagine data is organized XYZ. But after loading for some reason even though the data is organized as XYZ the axes are mislabeled ZYX. This plugin would simply allow user to change the order of the named axes (i.e. dataset.getAxes()) without changing pixel data at all.

"Fix axes" might be a good name for this command. We already have "Reorder Axes". Perhaps "Reorder Axes" should be "Reorder Data".
