I am not sure if it makes sense to speak of a Layers dialog here. This
is just a dock that happens to contain the Layers tab (which should
probably be called Layers dialog). What you describe here is the
default setup but you cannot assume that the user does not customize
this setup.

"Movement Grouping Indicator" seems rather odd. Internally we speak
about "linked items"; I'm not sure if this is used somewhere in the
user interface also. This linked state does not only affect movement,
it also applies to transformations.
