It would be wonderful if I could CMD+E shape layers without having to rasterise them first. I end up having to select shapes from each layer and copy and paste into a new layer.

Layer>Merge Shapes and/or Cmd + E will merge selected vector shapes to a single layer without rasterizing them in Photoshop CS6.

Note: All selected layers must be vector layers for this to work, and the shape attributes (fill, stroke, etc) of the top-most selected layer is applied to the layers that merged.
