Also, shouldn't we just have the Paths Layers within the Layers

Paths are not layers, neither in the code nor conceptually (well you
could stretch the concept, I guess, but y first idea would not put
these on the same conceptual level). So no, I don't think so.

This said, playing with it, I could see how you could see it as a layer rather than a single object. But we really don't process these that way in GIMP. One "path" is pretty much a unique object and not a layer (with several objects in it).

Also if you could order paths and layers together, it means you could have paths under layers (which currently doesn't exist). That could all be interesting ideas if GIMP had more powerful support of vectors. But right now I feel our implementation is too weak to consider paths as layers for vectors.
