I dont know if it is the current behaviour is intended or not but would it
be possible to change the drop down widget in the Layer dialog to hold
focus, so that when you press up or down rather moving to the next widget
you would instead switch to the next mode in the list?

Other keyboard shortcuts for changing mode would still be useful as they
would save users switching to the context of the Layer dialog.  My
suggestion is similar but seperate.
