Now, please, please. You have to make it so Photoshop can support layers in color indexed mode. Only issue is, it would disable color opacity( or not, depends on technical issues... ).
But please, it is a must to have such feature in the app.
It would ease making Pixel art a lot.....
It has be shown it is possible with programs like VirtualTek's Fighter Factory 3 or even Cosmigo Pro Motion NG... Please, think about it.

This would avoid the extra step of applying Image >  Posterize...  to each layer if designing for 8-bit artwork. Interesting idea.

I made a post about this awhile back as well.

One option would be the ability to disable anti aliasing for a chosen layer, so for ex, when scaling or rotating does not AA the edges for example.

This would make a huge difference in my workflow.
