What you discuss about the z-order is exactly how Inkscape work: the
first layer in the list is the topmost. And it should be the same for
Draw.  Access to any object, layer, group or object is done similarly
via the
navigator in order to simplify the workflow and clean the UI. It mixes tab
and z-order intentionally.
Changing the access to these features would also fix the issues, hopefully.

It seems, I was not clear enough. In ODF the z-order is _completely
different_ from the layer.

Right. So the feature is mainly useful for quickly showing and hiding
subsets of the Drawing - and it's orthogonal to everything else,
including z-order & navigation order.

Compare it to grouping or tagging, but it's without the hard-link when
e.g. moving grouped shapes around.

As such it's helpful. And the before is no statement about the
usefulness of layers in the meaning of Inkscape, Gimp or the like.
