I hope we won't ever get a layer-based interface, because this would
cause a lot of trouble and discrepancies between the various layers.
One of the best ideas when OSM was created was to use k/v-tags in a
"flat" system instead of traditional GIS layers. Like there aren't
actually independent layers in the real world there shouldn't be in
its digital representation.
