[Mapbender-dev] Relation map object / wms object

I really don't like how the map objects and the wms objects relate to 
each other.

The global JavaScript variable "wms" is an array of WMS objects. The 
variable "map" is an array of map objects. Each map object has an 
additional "wms" array and these entries point to the WMS within global 
variable "wms".

This means that you have at least one WMS in two or more map objects, so 
manipulating it in a single map also alters it in the other. I assume 
removing the global WMS object and storing the data in each map object 
would be more consistent.

Please enlighten me if you have an explanation why the current solution 
is superior.
