Hei Bernardo,

Just for the record: I am currently working on something similar / related.

First of all I would like to improve speed of v.rast.stats for multiple inputs:
https://www.mail-archive.com/grass-dev@lists.osgeo.org/msg52562.html and 

Adding a functionality to "tabulate areas" or "count categories" is a next step 
I have in mind which I am working on in v.rast.bufferstats (will be a port of 
v.what.rast.buffer [1] to GRASS 7 / pygrass (with some enhancements)). Once I 
have a good solution there I would like to see if it can be moved to 
v.rast.stats. Support for dbf driver is however a challenge...

I will add my "work in progress" script to github, so you can have a look if 
you like.

have look at


where I've coded some DEM derived stats and characteristics for polygones.
