when using layers, it is pretty much impossible to try to reflow the document
restarting from the top in a different layer - this frustrates me, because
that's now the concept of a layer is supposed to work.
currently, when you have elements with different z-indexes interspersed
throughout the document, you get big holes and strangenesses in your document
where it should be reflowing either next in the same layer if z-indexes match,
or to the top of the layer if it's the first element in the layer.
layers are supposed to be like transparent sheets of plastic laid on top of
each other and you put things on it. yes? 
I would expect my next css z-index:2; layer to reflow from the top like a
layered document is supposed to. 
lay some transparencies on top of each other for a visual - or imagine it. 
where does each document start at? the top. 


how it should work:
I would like to see new css z-index (layers) have the elements which have that
css property reflow from the top of the document.
elements that come later on which are from the main z-index (layer), should
simply be put in place where they belong on that layer, without holes.
