Main Question or Discussion Point

On standard road bike tires sometimes they put a soft/flexible kevlar layer to protect against puncture.
I was thinking about putting in in hard/rigid kevlar layer to also protect against puncture, I know that this will make the actual tire stiffer and harder to deform, which could be a bonus to lessen the rolling friction (loss of traction though)
also I thought it would lessen the dramatic decrease in tube pressure after riding.
all thoughts or comments appreciated

I imagine it would also make for a much harsher ride especially over bumpy surfaces. Even over not so bumpy surfaces, you'd probably get more vibration transmitted through to the rider.
