I'm working on a mobile tablet application that spends most of the time disconnected from the internet. When the application is connected to the internet, it's supposed to query and add data to a FeatureService. Is there a way to query/edit data in a FeatureLayer without adding the layer to a map?

I'm using the 10.1 WPF SDK, and the client will not be upgrading to 10.2 servers for a while, so I can't use disconnected editing.
