[Geoprisma-users] Auto hiding of vector layers if no edit

I am wondering what is the best approach to hiding WFS vector layers in
the mapfish layertree and the application in general when the user only
has read permissions.
Permissions are tied to resources and a resource defines both WMS and
WFS capabilities for a resource. If the user has "read" access then both
are configured in the layertree which clutters the GUI if you have 10
layers defined that show up twice. It seems that there should be a way
to say WFS is shown always or WFS is shown only if required by edit
widget. This would be like adding a dependency to an object.
This would allow WFS only resources to continue to be displayed if need
because they did not have a WMS alternative, but would allow you to
eliminate those that did have a WMS alternative.
