Why not let the creator of a story map choose which sub layers to display?

I get the principle of not displaying a TOC to the users - I like the simplistic approach.


But I do not understand why I as a creator/configurator of a story map can't turn on and off (sub) layers when setting the map content in a section?


I have a web map consuming a service with 8 layers. As it is - to display the layers individually in a story map, I have to add the map service several times to my web map with different layers in the map service turned on and off.


I only get the option to turn on/off a whole map service at a time. Not the layers or sub layers in the map service.


Please understand - I do not want the users to be able to toggle layers on/off - I just want to be able to define it when setting up my story map.


Any good reason for this?
