The ability to migrate layers or copy from a document to another document that is already opened and it has the same file dimensions, and these migrated or copied layers must be place in their respectful x-y-z location within the recipient document. This can be done by selecting the layer from the document A slide to to the tab of document Bn drop it on the document because it doesn't matter where within the document you will drop it because that layer's position will not match the document A location, and that consumes so much time especially if you have numerous layers and opened tabs.

With this features it will make it easier to work on multi PSD website designs, and it will allow designers to keep the same "header/footer/sidebar and so on" in a new website page and work only on the main content area that has changed from the index page to the blog page for instance.

Another suggestion that is related to this one, is the ability to duplicate an opened document into another one that is saved in the cash directory of the system awaiting a CTRL+S that will determine the location the user choses.

You can already do that in Photoshop, just hold shift while dragging to maintain the original position.
