The ability to customize the tooltips for previously installed
plugins on a layer's right click context menu. For example, I could
have a custom implementation of a Layer that is backed by a custom
FeatureCollection. If I mark the layer as readonly, the "Editable" menu
item is correctly greyed-out. The tooltip says something like "This
layer cannot be made editable." The menu item is greyed-out ...
obviously it's not editable. I would like to change the tooltip to
explain *why* the menu item is greyed-out ... which is particular to my
custom FeatureCollection.

IE.
"No Primary Key found on the underlying database table"
"Adhoc queries cannot be made editable"
"SQL Server DataStores cannot currently be made editable"
