Implement dragging across layer icons to enable/disable like one can in AfterEffects
In AfterEffects one can click and drag the mouse over the various layer icons (such as lock and visibility, for example) to change them all to be the same instead of having to manually click on each one individually. Please implement the same in Premiere.

I've been wanting this for years! Imagine dozens of invisible video layers containing over eighty audio-synced takes from multiple camera's (yes, that's how it works when shooting music video's) on top of a handful of visible layers, containing footage for the actual edit. When selecting the perfect shot/take at a particular time, you need to toggle the visibility of one of the invisible layers, followed by the one one top, followed by the next layer, etc. until you find the one shot you need at that specific point in time and duplicate that to the handful of lower video layers. Now, this leaves the top video layers visible and you need to click each of these layers eye-icon to toggle the layers visibility back to invisible, in order to see the handful of video layers below again. That's a lot of clicking each time you need to go through all of the video layers. Alternatively, you could hold down the shift-key in order to toggle all of the video layers at once. However, the handful of lower video-layer then all need to be toggled individually, in order to make them visible again. Still, a lot of clicking. Photoshop has this incredibly useful feature that allows you to toggle multiple layers by pressing down on the eye-icon and the dragging up or down, which will initiate scrolling through all the layers in the respective direction and in the process toggling all layers on or off (depending on the visibility of the initial layer where the action was started) the mouse comes across, until the mouse button is released, stopping the toggling process. This allows for a multitude of layers to be toggled by simply dragging across a couple of video layers, saving tons of clicks.
Photoshop also has this option.

@TaranVH: Wow, that's one serious list you've got going there!
I've moved my vote over from https://adobe-video.uservoice.com/forums/911233-premiere-pro/suggestions/33894193-hiding-showing-layers-and-tracks#comments , which is redundant, and poorly titled.
