As you noticed, one can only define simple layer visibility dependencies in GAL using SetRequired() method. Effectively, you can quickly disable a whole layer when another is invisible, but it does not handle well cases of e.g. texts whose visibility should depend both on the layer and the parent object visibility.
Perhaps we should define visibility rules per class and not per layer, so we can check additional conditions.
