Hi Balázs,

you can configure the available layers in the layer tree. If a layer is 
not visible, it is also not queried. You can preset these settings in 
the "edit GUI WMS" administration dialogue.

You can also restrict access to features to certain users or groups. You 
would have to change the column "auth" in the WFS conf administration: 
The featuretype element that should store the id of the owner would have 
to contain $_SESSION["mb_user_id"] for example (this only works with the 
latest code from trunk or branches/2.5).

I don't think there are any plans to restrict saving a feature in 
another data store. For some cases it is actually quite useful. I guess 
the best solution would be to make it configurable in the digitize 
configuration file.
