Labeling on layers and editing

I am converting an ArcMap extension client application based on Arcobjects to ArcGIS Runtime WPF.
We have an .mxd file with labeling even defined in label Expressions in ArcMap. I Create an .mpk file from this .mxd in ArcMap.
When I add an ArcGISLocalDynamicMapServiceLayer from .mpk file than labeling works fine.
As I understood labeling is not supported with ArcGISLocafFeatureLayers. I am going to implement selecting and attribute and geometry editing on most of the layers in .mpk.
I consider to have ArcGISLocalDynamicMapServiceLayer in background for best rendering and create transparent ArcGISLocafFeatureLayers or GraphicsLayers for each layer.
What is the best practice here?
