Allow relocate columns in AE interface
Columns like 'layer/name' and 'keys' should be on the right side, close to the timeline. It makes more sense if you consider how our eyes moves when editing properties:
1) start it on keyframes
2) go to identify the layer/name
3) go for pig tail, alpha etc.
...start, left, back to right. you go back and forward....
But if layer/names would be on the right, it will be start, left, left.

You can actually rearrange the timeline as you describe though in a roundabout way. You can drag most columns in the TLW to change their position, layer/name isn't one, but you can drag the others to the left/right side of it. That though is a stopgap to solve your current request, and likely should be expanded on to allow that column to be moved itself.
