Tangent to a spline

Hi,

In this file, I have a given spline, which is fixed and the tangent at the origin.

 

(Btw, I am wondering why I can fix the tangent at origin : if the spline is fixed, the tangent at any point too, but it's not the matter of my post)

 

I want to define a segment, being tangent at the origin.

 

So, I draw a segment, one point at origin, the other free, and I define a tangent property.

 

And I get what is on my screen.

How can I build this totally elementary construction ?

 

OK, I can declare some colinearity with the tangent of the spline.

 

But this kind of behaviour is surely totally normal ?
