Automatic layer Boundary management. In essence just let the program deal
with layer boundary - expand it whenever a layer is moved so that you can
ALWAYS paint on any area you wish. If there's some memory or files size issue,
perhaps add some automatic layer cropping on save.
I want to stress that such a feature is really, really, useful.
I believe there are some cases (scripts, maybe?) in which manual layer boundary
management is necessary, so it should be just an option or something that can
be deactivated temporarily.
