It seems as if implementing layers is basically the same thing as implementing an Advanced Theme with qa-theme.php. Why would someone choose to do a plugin layer vs. an Advanced Theme? What are the advantages? Is it that you can define your own functions in the Layer?

They are very similar, but you can have multiple layers installed simultaneously via multiple plugins, but only a single advanced theme. So if you want to distribute your modifications for others in a plugin, you'll need to use a layer.
Also, I think it is important to mention that the theme alters the layout last in order, doesn't it?
