My idea is that changing r.shaded.relief -> r.relief allows us to use r/d.shaded.relief for relief maps that are colored by another variable (elevation, land-cover, etc).

Yes, I like this list better than the current names of discussed modules.
So, if you like it, I can like it too and I will change it hopefully soon. Just to be sure: including r.shaded.relief -> r.relief?
r.shaded.relief -> r.relief
r.shadedmap -> r.shade
d.shadedmap -> d.shade
Done in r63305 with few other improvements.
Now I'm not sure with [rd].shade parameters. reliefmap and drapemap are not particularly explanatory. My idea was shade and color which is better when shade=slope compared to relief=slope. color=elevation is also quite understandable but of course it is quite unexpected that the color option is a raster map.
There is also one detail I'm not sure about. r.relief might be now missing one keyword and that is "shaded relief". "relief" should be there too but having also "shaded relief" distinguishes it from things like "local relief (model)".
