An often-overlooked capacity of the CAM Manager is the ability to set up 
customized photoplot parameters for some of the layers.

So a mechanical layer *could* be used as an outline blowout on inner planes 
only, you would just remove the inner planes from your general plot control 
file and create a new file just for them in which that mechanical layer was 
merged with the planes. Might as well put it on the solder mask as well.

It may not be essential to blowout the outline because fabricators *should* 
relieve the edges even if they are not relieved on the plots.

But I use a 50 mil track as the outline on planes; the only problem with 
this is that a warning is issued in DRC that there are primitives on inner 
planes.
