Null layers should be empty Shape layers rather than Solids
This will prevent unnecessary clutter in the Solids folder.
In an effort to improve communications between you and the After Effects team, we are moving this feedback forum to the After Effects page on the Adobe Support Community. As requested, bugs and feature requests will be able to live separately in that forum. If you have an item here that did not make the migration, please bring it over to our new home.
See you soon on the Adobe Support Forum!

This would also make compositions more portable between project files. There is often the need to import a specific comp from one project file into another. Currently, you need to find any null solids used in your needed comp and move those so that you can delete the unnecessary parts of the imported project.
