I'm attempting to edit local shapefiles and have gotten as far as loading them in the map and manipulating them with an EditGeometryusing the examples posted in this thread: http://forums.arcgis.com/threads/75915-How-to-open-shape-file-in-ArcGIS-Runtime-WPF-SDK-as-Graphics-Feature-layer

However when I attempt to replace the LocalMapService with a LocalFeatureService, I run into problems with the LocalFeatureLayer never getting the shapefile data source. Is it possible to apply permanent edits to a local shapefile using the ArcGIS WPF API? I'm interested in editing both the attribute table as well as the geometry, but a solution that provides either/or would be great.

EDIT: I'd like to note that pre-baking the shapefile into an MPK isn't an option as a user may not always have access to ArcGIS desktop.
