I find r.region usefull to move my rasters within the location as
needed. Sometimes handy. I admit this can be achieved by other means
(r.out.tiff with tfw, adjust tfw, reimport), but it's not as
convenient. r.region is also neat for using the same MASK for different
rasters. And for quick georefferencing data which are already
rectified, but have no georefferencing (eg. lost .tfw) - again, could
craft a world file hand but r.region is quicker, for me.

v.transform looks like r.region for vectors, although it's usage is

It would be cool if r.region could also move the raster by a given x,y
shift like v.transform does.

Just my thinking.
