You can already do this - check some vids on record modes and layers.

Not sure if it’s a command or macro but you can definitely explode recorded takes to layers in one go.

EDIT: returned with a screenshot.

Select the takes on the track, right click, Unpack Takes, Unpack Takes to new (or existing) layers.
