I'll take a shot at answering. A board with an odd number of layers
is difficult to manufacture. Basically, to do this means removing
all the copper from one side of a fiberglass panel, thus leading to
warping due to unequal thermal expansion. I suggest a ten layer
stackup as follows:
5. PWR (+5)
9. PWR (-15)
With this stackup the adjacent PWR/GND layers (5 and 6) form a
relativly good decoupling cap. Route any signal referenced to the
-15v on layers 8 and 9.
