I use Geoff Canyon's RevNavigator all the time for this kind of thing.  
I believe it's one of the plugins that comes with Rev, if not, go to http://www.inspiredlogic.com/navigator/Navigator.html

You get a palette that displays a list of all controls on the topcard,  
listed in layer order, with grouped objects set off by pipe symbols  
(nested as necessary). To put something in an existing group, you just  
drag it to the layer position you want in that group. Easy as pie.
