Sounds close to the approach of Fritzing, where wiring is documented
as literal wires put in a plug-board.  Your concept is different only
in keeping the as built prototype as a reference -- no plug-board.

One step of getting the omitted components documented would be
to reduce the instances of footprints to traces of the same shape,
with no footprint data associated.

Your concept of showing overlapping layers that do not create connectivity
can be stated like this also:  Create a second board, or daughter board view,
with viewing similar to far side, but maybe in a less saturated view with colors
instead of grey, which also creates a longer layer list where visibility can
be turned on or off.  You would also want a way to swap which board is the reference
mother or daughter board, so you could focus on one or the other at  a time.
