I don't think so.  It is very useful if you have a background layer, and 
then a layer with a character moving around in it.  That way you can't 
select your background or static props, facilitating faster editing of 
what is actually moving in the scene.  This is a more versatile version 
of the Freeze feature in 3d studio minimum (yes, I have a personal 
vendetta against that program).
