While I can understand what you're saying, it would make the process (of editing the effects) more fugly. This is probably why it's not implemented, as it keeps the program(s) more flexible and user friendly.

Oh, I think being able to group and parent effects would make it more user friendly, as in many cases animation of multiple layers would be drastically quicker. And since you don't have to group things, people who prefer to work on each layer separately, or for cases where you have to work on each layer separately, it wouldn't cause any problems.

It is something that has been suggested and asked for for quite a while, and I'm pretty sure we will see it someday. I don't think anything is in the works for adding this right now, though.
