*embarrassed* scrap that - you'd still need to toggle the layer
Another thought: take look at the export options of JessyInk (part of
Inkscape 0.48 ) and the python script it is based on. Maybe you can
reuse it to create your own export extension? JessyInk also uses a
global background layer (for the presentation).

If I understand your question correctly, JessyInk should pretty much
exactly do what you need.
The following steps should get you the result you want:
1) Install JessyInk in your image .
2) Set your background slide .
3) Export your image (for reasons explained on the wiki page, this is a
two stage process) .
Should you have any problems, feel free to contact me. Alternatively, as
~suv mentioned, it should be fairly easy to modify the JessyInk export
extension to suit your needs.

(If your are using Inkscape 0.48 you can directly jump to the last step.
