Hmm.  With Dialogs->Create New Dock you are given a choice of three
types of docks.  The Layers etc dock is special because it contains
the Layers menu at the top -- there is no way to put this menu in any
other dock.  Also the Layers dialog is something no user can live 
without.  Thus, this particular kind of flexibility is just an option
to make things awkward, so it seems reasonable to treat the Layers dialog,
as created by "Dialogs->Create New Dock->Layers, Channels & Paths" as
part of the standard interface, at least for purposes of describing
it to new users.

So how about "Linkage Indicator", then?
