Yes, both shifting by the same amount and setting a fixed date can be
useful. I usually re-schedule leftover todos by shifting them by one
or two working days to the future. So originally I had a bulk version of
`org-agenda-do-date-later' and friends in mind as opposed to
`org-agenda-schedule'. But the latter one would be useful to. Ideally,
S-left, C-cC-s et al. would trigger a bulk shift/bulk schedule whenever
there are marked agenda items.

I am not so sure about this last point.  I am not a
fan of automatic bulk action if several items are selected.

- these lists can become long, and selected entries might
  be off the screen
- for this to make sense, selected entries should remain
  selected after action, increasing the danger of unwanted action
- you might be in the process of selecting some entries, when you
  want to do a quick action on an individual entry you come across.
  But you cannot, because any action will act on all selected ones.

So I do prefer a special command like "B" to introduce bulk action.
