Yes, I too think it's a good idea that should be implemented!
It would be even more useful if it was not only an aestethic/usability
addition, but if expanded program functionality by providing "group
These "group layers masks" would work like normal masks, but with group of
layers instead of single layers. That's one of the layer features I need
most, as I'm an "artist" (more like "creative user", though) and I use many
layers even with simple works, and I often need masks to affect multiple
layers at once.

This too, I'm surprised it's not possible to do at the time, because it's
a logical and intuitive way to combine multiple layers together.
