I have been on both sides of this discussion about moving layering into
APR.  I still don't know how I feel about it.  Moving the IOL's into the
APR structures removes some complexity, and adds other complexity.  I have
a design for doing it somewhere, but it is pretty low on my list of
priorities, because I'm just not sure it's a good idea yet.
