Coming from Illustrator, something I used somewhat infrequently but often enough was the Variable Stroke Width tool. This tool allowed you to change the width of the stroke along a curve (we have this) with adjustable Anchors along the curve (we don’t have this). Very useful if you wanted to precisely align a specific stroke width to a specific area of the shape like a pre-measured curve anchor. 

This video shows what I’m talking about:

Just in case you were not aware, while the Affinity apps do not currently offer a tool for making these adjustments interactively on the object itself (and I agree this would be a nice addition), you can often get a similar effect by using the "Pressure" popup in the Stroke panel.
