Usage of a FeatureLayer backed by a map service (instead of FeatureService)

Does anyone know the differences between a FeatureLayer initialized with a MapService url and a FeatureLayer initialized with a FeatureService url? I can't find this clearly defined anywhere.

I'm guessing the former has isEditable() = false and the latter has isEditable() = true. Is there anymore to it than that?

Would FeatureLayers w/ MapServices backing them fall into the same use case as creating a queryTask and loading the results into a GraphicsLayer?

Thanks for any input on this.
