"Layers" exist only in the imagination of network architects and standards committee weenies. (Been there, done that.) In the real world there is hardware in boxes and wires and some of these boxes run software which manipulates the hardware, causing it to do things that most programmers never imagined, because most programmers are clueless as to how hardware works, believing that the hardware magically manipulates bits and not electrons. At the very least, details of Ethernet cabling effect the electromagnetic environment, as these cables act as antennas to radiate interference as well as to receive it. The engineers who designed the Ethernet signalling were well aware of these issues and specified cabling, including shielding where needed.
