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.
