comment Vector Delta Function Identity
The 1-dimensional version doesn't seem to work for $g(a)=-a$, since $\delta(-a) = \delta(a)$. Also the $n$-dimensional case needs a sum over roots too I think.

comment Why $\vec{r}$ is commonly use for vector equation?
Though obviously false, the following explanation has been popular with my students: It is a verbal joke (which only works in English): since the vector gives your location from the origin, it tells you where you "are".
