I think that's at least a step in the right direction and probably a good
addition to d.rast, d.vect.* and d.sites.
Even though I do like this idea, I would prefer to go the next step. By
itself this idea identifies a problem without actually solving it. Solving
the problem for the specific case of initialization would require very little
more work. In fact, I think that adding just the initialization check might
take less code and I'm sure it would impose less startup overhead.
I think users -- new users in particular -- would probably prefer to have
GRASS fix the problem itself rather than requiring them to perform a second
command then repeating their first command just to get an image displayed.
