Not exactly, the idea is to substitute direct PostGIS editing via
Postgres provider for WFS-T/Django to get rid of users/permissions
maintenance on Postgres level. Django will be the only access gateway
where permissions are checked and data are filtered. Syncing
users/permissions/filters between Django and PostGIS is a pain which
we want to abandon. Similarly a WMS vector data source can be filtered
on Django level.
