To me, "relative to XX" is just a shorthand description of a  
coordinate reference systems. When I think of it as a CRS, it clearly  
should be defined at the layer level like the geographic and  
projected coordinate systems already in play.

     layer.setImageOrigin(LR)   # or maybe even override setProjection()
     layer.transform = MS_FALSE
