Doubt that an internal object identification by name is a good idea. You have 
to suppress identical naming and on paste you add a number (Foo1). But that's 
up to development. From the user perspective I don't care.

As an example

Page 1
 Layer "Foo"
Page 2
 Default layer

If you copy/move Shape_1 from Layer_Foo to Page 2 it should affect only this 
object, and Shape_1 is placed on the default layer. If the user copy/pastes a 
group, all objects are taken. And we need a separate function for the layer. So 
copying Layer_Bar into page 2 adds it likewise when creating a new layer and 
pasting just all objects from Layer_Bar. Differently to the ctrl+a,ctrl+c/x 
interaction, I would include all hidden elements too for the layer copy action..
