Repeating Tasks Absolute or Relative

When creating repeating tasks, absolute repeating tasks would happen on the repeating schedule regardless of completion date. On the other hand, relative repeating tasks would happen set number of days after completion days.
For example an absolute repeating task would be taking trash to the curbside for regular pickup on a fixed day, Tuesday. Even if we forget to mark it as complete on the correct day (Tuesday) and check it off on Thursday, since it was set up as absolute, it would repeat in 7 days every Tuesday.
On the other hand, watering the greenhouse plants every 3 days should be setup as a relative repeating task. Even if you go 7 days between watering, it makes no sense when the repeating task happens in the past right after it is marked completed.
