    An indented way to achieve this now is to create a simple action.

    1. Create an action

    2. Select some art

    3. Create a new Layer with a button in the Layers panel

    4. Object > Arrange > Send to Current Layer

    5. End recording

    Actions are great for automating various routines we have in Illustrator, and this is just one of them. If you think it still should be a native operation instead (or an action to be included in standard Actions pack) — please vote and comment.
