ESRI-like Layer Aliases in layer/feature selection lists

A nice UI/UX aspect of ESRI products is the fact that layers are aliased in selection drop-downs and other menus by their group membership and name.
This helps with distinguishing multiple similar layers.
In a project that has multiple LRS layers, you'd be hard-pressed to tell them apart in QGIS currently, especially if they're all in the same CRS.
If an ESRI-like aliasing was adopted, this problem is reduced.
So in my example, I have multiple LRS layers as so:
If I went into the layer picker, they might show as LRS\LRS, NYSDOT Milepoint\LRS, and TOB_Milepoint\LRS, instead of LRS, LRS, LRS in the picklist.
