I keep everything in my layouts simple - everything goes in the 'Archicad' layer.
That way nothing can be turned off and I don't have to worry about layer combos.
For alternative layouts I will simply create a new page and then choose which one I want in my Publisher set.
I don't do any documenting or annotation in the layouts - it is all done in the model, including title blocks and drawing titles.
