Hello. I think that it would be nice If we could align some object in relation to the canvas, without always needing to create an empty layer only to do that. Thanks.

Smart Guides will snap to edges and centers if you drag the layer on the canvas with the move tool

If you hit Cmd + A to select all you can also use the alignment commands to align to selections (this may be what you mean by creating an empty layer).

For vector paths it is possible. For the other layers not. I also do for centering a new layer.
