What do you need from the mobile drawings? Things to consider: Keeping the layer list small and suitably granular Standardizing the layer set across all drawings Knowing how are objects drawn or inserted Do you have 3D objects or blocks Are properties assigned by layer and not by block or object Do you have nested blocks Complexity and detail of predefined blocks
