In m1 I myself have used something which in m2 can be denoted as ${pom.type
== 'multiproject'}.
Then it should be up to particular plugin to detect such project type and
possibly run reactor.

-r flag is surly useful in some situational cases and I am not saying that
it should be removed but we I suppose 
it is even doable to guess from the context if we need to start reactor or

For example for project which has a type = "multiproject" if we do

m2 idea 

idea plugin should be smart enough to discover that execution of reactor is
needed and do what's resonable in such case.
