    Web services are tightly connected to web maps. When web services change structure they can break web maps.

    Web service evolve and change over time. In order to give users the time to update there applications but asure that new users do not implement them any longer we suggest to hide these services from the ArcGis Rest Service Directory. This would keep a clean list to our users and make sure that catalogs do not broadcast web services that no longer should be used.
