As you know that we can't delete defpoint and 0 layer... so if you want to delete x-ref dependent layer first you have to convert all x-ref dependent layer into 0 layer and than purge over all drawing.... now you can eliminate all x-ref dependent layer....

Have had this problem for years.  I've detached xrefs from drawings and have never been able to get rid of the xref dependent layers until now.  Just need to select all the empty unused layers that won't delete in the Layer Properties Manager, right click on the selection, choose  'Merge selected layer(s) to ...' and select layer 0 as the target layer.  All those pesky layers then disappear!
