"Draw In Front" button
We have a "Draw Behind" button that adds objects immediately behind the current selected object in the Layers panel.
However, we need a "Draw in Front" button that adds immediately on top of selected objects.
The "Draw Normal" adds objects to the very top position in the Layer.
The attached graphic was created as follows:
1. Magenta rectangle.
2. Cyan rectangle.
3. Select Magenta rectangle
4. Change to "Draw Behind" mode .
5. Yellow rectangle.
6. Select Magenta rectangle.
7. Change to "Draw Normal".
8. Black rectangle.

The risk is no greater than switching to the current draw behind or draw inside buttons. I’m not looking for a work around. I’m suggesting an improvement/addition to the current draw modes.
I like the idea!
But since it’s a mode, which is not very clear when turned on, I am a bit afraid of having it. It can bring a lot of confusion, so it should be marked clearly.
Meanwhile, there is an easy enough workaround. If you isolate and object, the newly created object will be placed just above it, because you limit the scope. If you assign a hotkey to isolating a selection (it’s blank by default), you effectively create a mode by pressing it.
Please comment back if it works for you.
