    It would be very helpful if a layerid in a map service is an id and not an index. Changing the id by adding, deleting or repositioning a layer in a mapservice may cause many errors in applications.

    Important advantages of ids:
    Less error possibilities in widgets and configurations, if you editing your map service

    Less work for the Administrators (editing configs after changing map service)

    Widgets using query task with layer ids will work stable.

    It would be possible to save layer settings for a map service. For example it could be very helpful for the customer if you leave a map client to save settings. Opening the next time you see the same layervisibility.
