I missed the ++ usage in this context completely. Yes, this gets me close to what I was looking for.

Ideally, something like this should be available in the org file, rather than in the agenda. The reason being is that it is a common project planning task to shift all related tasks back by some set period of time. I can see expanding the notion to take dependencies into account, but that is not critical. I'm just looking for a way to do this routine in the project management & planning contexts in my own work and in my organization....

But if I shift back and forth to the agenda, then I can make this work. I'm assuming that the 'Cc C-s' and 'C-c C-d' commands don't work on regions or on everything under a heading?
