Actually, coming to think of it there is a way to copy between layers 
without using the clipboard: With "Multi-layer" on and the current 
layer set to the desired destination layer you can use the QuickCopy 
tool to copy objects between layers. That way, you could copy from the 
pasteboard of a master layer (which appears on every page) to a 
page-specific layer.
