I am actually using r.reclass quite frequently in batch processing. I
read about the concept that a reclass map is some sort of a lightweigt
virtual map, but for simple-minded GRASS users like me, r.reclass is
just another map-creating raster module. As the documentation states:

For quite a while, I used to always align the current region settings
with the base map before running r.reclass. After some time, I noted
that this isn't necessary, as the generated virtual map is always based
on the full extent of the base map and its original resolution. I just
couldn't find this mentioned in the documentation.
