Photoshop: It would be so great to have an "Crop Adjustment Layer"

I work a lot on compositing intensive photoshoots and built precomps on set.
A simple Problem i always run into are multiple crops. Clients want many different crops out of the same Picture. So i always setup 3-4 solid black layers with the crops in the alpha masks.
That looks like this. But its not handy to control in the alpha mask. 

It would be so cool to have a "Crop Adjustment Layer" where you can setup multiple crop aspect ratios. It should work as a switch function where you choose the active crop and only see the cropped part. The selected crop should also be shown in bridge.
Additionally it would be practical to have a button to see all croppes at the same time as colored lines on the whole image.
