That means altering the source code of some extension ext_tables.php, if 
I rememember correct. I know that possibility.

I tried to find if there could be some TypoScript to do that without
any changes to source code of any plugin. But it seemst that there is not.

I added to 'tm_contentaccess' possibility to set this using extended 
TypoScript because I didn't find any existing TypoScript for that.

that could be reasonable way to put them into extension

that belongs to TCA-setting

I mean *that* checkbox - I made for it TypoScript. That checkbox doesn't 
belong at all to TCA - it is rendered by a function, which renders the 
bottom of the view. It seems that I made correct decision putting for 
that extra condition and extended TypoScript in TS Config for users/user

A good question.

TCA-related setting are AFAIK in ext_tables.php or in tca.php files.

Ok. I must do some changes into my plugin and try to redefine some 
TCA-settings. I made a bug report because IMO these should be as default
in 'Allowed excludefields:' list.

I have modified some TCA-settings even if I'm not very familiar with 
them. I must in this case take account the enableField field settings.
