What if you just use the multi output node lukas added recently, you could keep consistently the difference between renderlayers (each node) and the passes (each layer of the node)  does it make sense to you?

Every output node is a layer
Every input of an output node is a pass

Yes, if the renderer generates multilayer files directly it can
organize them in layers and passes. But when writing files from the
compositor using the file output node, or when importing general files
from somewhere else there is usually no such notion of "render
layers". That's why trying to sort the content of every multilayer
file into a set of render layers doesn't work.
