We'll see what others think. I'm not a big user of layers, but they seem 
to make the most sense when you have certain kinds of content on a given 
layer, named appropriately, and you can name your frames accordingly as 

You can also bring up the Layers dialog quite easily (F6) or even leave 
it open. Clicking the 'visible' checkbox will show/hide a given layer, 
so you instantly see what is on each layer.

So what would be gained by adding your suggestion? (other than busy work 
for the programmers)
