I'd like there to be a 'Construct Point' GP tool (within the Features toolset of the Data Management toolbox) that would place a point at a user given distance (or proportion) along a line. Then this point could be offset, at a user defined distance orthogonally, either left  or right, from the point's original line. The resultant point should have the same attributes as it's originating line.

At this time we do not have a plan to offer this capability as a system tool. We do have a geoprocessing tool, Generate Points Along Lines, that can generate the points. Interactive editing tools can then be used to offset the points away from the line.
