Moving a product outside of its hierarchy should retain layouts

In the following situation, a product's layouts will be reset to the default layouts:

  1. Create product under a product line

  2. Set the layouts to inherit the product line's layouts

  3. Edit the product to remove its parent product line (i.e. move it to the top of the hierarchy)

Options for improving this:

  1. Preserve the previously used layouts as the new custom layouts for the product

  2. Provide a "Where are my fields?" type of experience to help users understand why custom fields no longer show and give guidance on how to get them back
