PHOTOSHOP - Standardize Timeline

Would really like to see the timeline in Photoshop standardized to work the same as the vast majority of professional applications using timelines. Layers stacked, then moving L -> R is each frame. Each layer with the ability to be changed at that particular frame/instance.

The way it works now seems incredibly counter-intuitive and redundant (ex: having both a unique frame and a unique layer to turn on for that frame? Separate pull down to manually enter a hold time? Bizarre). Flash, TVPaint, AFX all make much more sense. Ability to group and tween symbols like Flash does would be a nice bonus.

Seems like most of the traditional uses of Photoshop could be left to elements, then the rest using it more robustly would have systems capable of running a more 2016 level workload.

Photoshop is still image editing software and calling the use of its animation features a »more robust« use seems a poor choice of words.
