Automatically name layers created by Generative Fill

The Generative Fill tool currently creates new layers with generic names like "Generative Layer 1, 2, 3," etc. I've been thinking about how to improve this.

1. What if Photoshop named the newly generated layers automatically based on the input prompts? This is similar to ChatGPT, which titles each new chat based on the first input. For example, if I type "desert landscape," my new layer could be named "Desert Landscape."

2. Additionally, the tool could automatically create a layer group named Generative Fill. All generated layers would then be placed inside this group. Users could have the option to turn off layer grouping in their preferences.

3. If the input prompt is wordy, the tool could generate a more concise layer name. So instead of naming the layer "desert landscape at sunset with cacti and tumbleweeds," the tool could name it "Sunset Desert Scene."

I believe these tweaks could make navigating between layers much easier and more intuitive, particularly in larger projects. What do you all think? Does anyone else feel this could make finding layers easier?
