Transformations

Transformations are processes that carry out low level changes to the game world. They can transform some source items to (one or more) items of some specific type(s), or change the properties of an item in some way. Smithing some item from some source metal lumps could be one transformation, and converting flour, yeast, sugar and some other ingredients to cookies could be another transformation. They are invoked from actions. What is the division of labour between actions and transformations?
