Allow for Draw Order Customization Within a Layer

I have a webmap with several overlapping polygon features, some of which are completely surrounded by other polygons. This unfortunately winds up hiding some of the smaller ones, rendering them invisible on the maps. I'd like to be able to reorder each feature within that layer so that the larger layers are at the bottom and not hiding other polygons within them. Or, at the very least, I'd like to be able to make a feature completely transparent, for the same reason.

At the moment my solution is to have three separate layers splitting the polygons up in such a way that no one polygon completely hides another. This is cumbersome to maintain, and also tends to look rather awkward in the map legend and layer list.

This is a must.  You should be able to determine the drawing order based on symbology within a layer/feature class.

This is a must for me too. Is this currently being worked on?
