Wouldn't it be great if you cout cut an object or group in Indesign and apply 'paste in place' (on a new layer) like in Illustrator? I'd use it all the time!

Ctrl-Alt-Shift-V does pretty much that, I think. You do have to select the new page and layer, but it pastes the cut or copied object exactly in the same relative place on the page.

Paste in place already works in Indesign. Copy an object and go to a different page and paste with Ctrl+Alt+Shift+V. You may consider these options found in the Layers palette:

These will control how is your content pasted and ungrouped. Watch out, if you copy/paste from another document, when "Paste remembers layers" is turned on, it will create the layer from where the copy is coming from.

You forgot about using ALT key - what you are describing will only MOVE between layers - @martin draax wants to make a COPY.
