This is a great example of naming layers and keeping it simple.

It is Modo, windows and mac users can get the test version at their 
site. But as for naming, it helps in massive ways of finding stuff and 
working with stuff. Plus in modos method there is a background button 
to set a layer as just a locked shaded out view of what ever layer your 
on, so you can see but not edit. I know blender has this already in the 
scene editor but this is a one click deal instead of multiclick.

Just passing on info of better faster work flow ideas.
