Layers in S1 are intended for use exclusively as response Feedback?

Help me understand the design intent of layers in Storyline 1 (and is it the same with S2?)...

When I view "Layout" options dropdown–while editing a layer–the only options shown are those for Feedback. Are layers NOT intended to be used any other way, such as for depth by hiding/revealing elements?

What do I need to understand about S1 re: layers so I avoid further frustration?
