Summary0014607: rename the "background" layer to something else
Descriptionplease, rename the "background" layer to anything else.

"main" or "default" could be a better name.

this is a real pain, when you want to tell somebody to add a layer where she can put a background color or image.

"create a layer behind the current one, where you will put the background image..."

but also in my workflow, i get stuck each time i have to create a background layer and the name is already taken...

'main' has partly the same problem as 'background', as it doesn't necessarily contain the main part of the layout.
'default' is much better – and it's consistent with 'default character style', 'default paragraph style'…

“default layer” (with _layer_ in the end) in order to stay in coherence with the naming scheme of “default character style” and “default paragraph style”

well, if i can choose, the suggested harmonization should shrink all default labels to "default":

in the list of character styles, i don't need the extra information that is given in "default character styles"... and there are no mixed lists, afaik. (not yet...)
