Not possible in 2.6 AFAIK (next version has the concept of "layer groups" so perhaps...).

If you aren't worried bout their position (you are going to move them after the duplication), you can save these layers in an XCF (Image/Duplicate, remove layers you don't want, and save as XCF), and then use "File/Open as layers" to add the saved layers to the image.
