I would also have suggested an AFP entry.

Think of it as x being the direction of a ray of light hitting a mirror
(in the shape of a hyperplane through the origin with normal vector a)
and being reflected. The result is the direction of the reflected ray.

Where it belongs I cannot say; that depends on what kinds of results are
proven about it. I for one would consider this a very ‘applied’ concept
(I know it from ray tracing), so unless we have a concrete application
for it, I'm not sure we need it at all.
