    * Bottom Silk Screen Layer
    * Solder Stop Mask Layer (Top Solder Mask)
    * Solder Stop Mask Layer (Bottom Solder Mask)

It is better to put the dimension and border layer to all the layers,  it is much easier for PCB factory and you to compare the layers when you print it out and overlap all the layers together,  the PCB factory will remove it when they do the board.

Hi Soter;
Dimension layer has no need for the manufactuerer, all what matter to them is the Keep Out Layer, which really spcify the outer dimension of your PCB, lets say that your pcb have iregular shape ?? what the dimension layer can tell at this case......

Best regards
