Enable editing on a per-layer basis in a feature service

If a feature service is editable, it means that all layers are editable. I'd like to be able to make layers individually editable or not within a service.

Currently, you can disable individual layer editing in a web map, but the service owner can't save this setting as an item property of the service itself.

Use case: you want users to add points within a defined boundary. You want the boundary layer present for reference but you don't want it to be editable.

To add: Make it possible to set editing capabilities by layer so that some layers have the ability to be edited with Add, Delete AND Update and some layers only set to Update
