Relative Transform Scale

I would like to reduce the width of a number of layers by 6 inches, and the height by 2 inches. It would be nice if I could replace the current value by entering +6 or +2 respectively. Reduction would be done by entering something like -5.

An alternative might be a delta toggle next to the horizontal and vertical scale entry boxes, like the translate x and y have already.

Agreed, but we could make it consistent with how Illustrator already handles this with putting the math into the current value in any numerical field (eg. "5px +5" or "1.2398cm * 8")

I have used software that has this feature and I absolutely love it. Once in a while I try to type simple equations into Adobe entry boxes by habit, and I realize it won't work. Unit conversions would also be a fantastic option.
