Might be.  But you see that it being non-self-documenting is as good
as having no indicator...

Addressed in the OP.  Toggle-visibility is as now (click on composite icon).
Toggle-chaining must be moved elsewhere; the OP suggests moving to
near lock-transparencey (where, IMO, it belongs anyway).  (It might be
duplicated in a context menu of the icon too.)

Locking - I have no idea what you mean here...

Toggling visibility is a non-issue.  Chaining MAY BE an issue
(although I can't comment - I never needed chaining).  If judged
important enough, toggle-chaining on non-active layers may be also
implemented as Alt-Click (would be self-documented if mentioned in
right-mouse context menu).
