If you look up layers in the index to the Notation
Reference you'll find there that it says the layer
property should be set to an integer and most objects
are drawn by default with a value of 0 or 1.  Also
the example shown uses a value of -1.  Maybe we
ought to change define-grob-properties to reflect
this, though.

yes, that's true but in the Appendix A of the NR as well as in the IR (14
times) you can read:

layer (integer)
The output layer (a value between 0 and 2): Layers define the order of
objects. Objects in lower layers are overprinted by objects in higher

this is very confusing!

It is, isn't it!  That's why I suggested to Mark that
the wording in define-grob-properties be changed.  This
wording is the source for both the NR Appendix and the IR.

I'll update it to agree with the main text in the NR - it
doesn't have to be between 0 and 2.
