a background bitmap is more like the grid that can be shown or not, but cannot be plotted, and is not a layer.
Layers 29, 30 and 31, not yet used in Pcbnew, should be left for something related to the board.
A background bitmap is not a board item.
I'd propose for a 'special' kind of entities, not a layer... I agree
that should be something under the 'view controls'. Also it would need
some controls for registering it, more or less like the grid.

I agree. A new item on the View menu makes sense.

To be clear, it should go in the 'render' tab, not in the 'layers'

Agreed. I'll reimplement in this way.
