An Anti-adjustment layer would turn off effects applied on an adjustment layer for all clips below the anti adjustment layer. I often find myself applying effects to several layers but do not want that effect applied to a base layer.

Coming late to this but... is not an adjustment layer like a clip? And to toggle it off could you not Disable? I have that mapped to Control B.

So glad I'm not the only one who thought of this!
Particularly useful for something like music videos, where you're got half a dozen different scenes that are all cutting back and forth. Nesting won't work because you need the different scenes to be on the same timeline so you can cut them together.
So you'd have, as an example :
Track 1-3: Scene 1 (take 1-3)
Track 4: Adjustment layer for scene 1
Track 5: Anti Adjustment Layer (which would block the Adjustment layer on track 10)
Track 6-9: Scene 2 (take 1-4)
Track 10: Adjustment layer for scene 2.
I'm cutting a music video right now and it has 30+ tracks. I'd love a way to manage adjustment layers better between scenes and tracks.

Yes, I nest now. This would be more intuitive in my opinion. I would prefer to keep it all in the same timeline.

I would suggest to use Nest Sequences, and apply the adjustment layer inside the nested sequence, or apply the effects on the nested sequence itself.
