I think the ArcGIS Desktop should support OGC WFS services without having to use an extension (Data Interoperability). This is like using a bazooca to kill an ant. Other GIS software already follow this tendency to support WFS fully. First reading the attribute table for analysis and thematic maps, and then for editing.

WFS support was added at ArcGIS Pro 2.0.

Use WFS services layers—Services | ArcGIS Desktop 

Notice that there are some limitations and 

  • WFS with transactions is not yet supported. The layer behaves as a read-only data source.

Therefore, this idea has been promoted to In Product Plan as full functionality including editing will come at a future release.
