Photoshop: Better right click list of layers which identifies normal layers and grouped layers.

When I label layers in Photoshop I label normal layers in lowercase and grouped layers upper case and starting with a forward slash ie. /LAYER NAME. Any grouped layers nested within a group I label with two forward slashes. ie

layer 1
/GROUP LAYER 1
layer 2
//GROUP LAYER
layer 3
layer 4

In short can we not have a better way of identifying grouped layers other than indenting the layers within the list? Icons? Underlines?

If icons are the answer here, an icon next to type layers might also be useful.

Also colour coded layers should be colour coded in this right-click list.
