Anyway to burn the source name to a layer as text without having to add a text layer?

I assume you've figured out that if you DO add a text layer, you could just add the expression:
thisComp.layer(index+1).name
to a text layer's 'Source Text' if that text layer is directly above the "source name layer" to display the layer name.
