I'm not sure what you call "layer". AFAIK MBTiles files do not have a concept
of storing tiles for different layers. (you could use GeoPackage for that)

It is true that the spec doesn't say anyting about tile size, but are there
MBTiles files with tiles not 256x256 ? This isn't supported by the driver. On
writing this shouldn't be a big problem. On reading this might be a bit more
tricky as you could potentially have a mix of tiles of different sizes !
