Layering Keyboard Shortcut
I would find it really helpful to have a keyboard shortcut for layering. Does it exist? If not, can it be developed?

F11 will toggle between Edit and Viewer mode. Unless you have layering disabled in Page Setup, this will toggle layering.

I don't want to go into viewer mode but toggle between layered and unlayered in edit mode using a keyboard shortcut.

If you are using a keyboard macro program such as AutoHotKey, you can assign a hotkey to the sequence Alt-V, A, which will toggle layering by way of the shortcuts in the menus. Or if you don't mind typing Alt-V, A manually, that would also work (you can type it as Alt-V, Alt-A so you don't have to let up on the Alt key, if that is easier to type). You can also take advantage of the Alt "sticky key" feature by typing Alt, V, A as separate keystrokes.

I don't really know anything about macros and hot keys but Alt V A is doable. Thanks!

I'd rather like to have a shortcut to switch between visible (default) and hidden and vice versa without having to manage the dialog box every time...
