Well, say you have three content areas (i.e. DS fields that contain 
content elements). On one TO, all three areas are mapped. In another TO, 
only 2. With this latter TO you still see the third content area, which 
is confusing for editors, because they can place content elements there 
that don't appear in the FE.

This means that you have to do 2 DS. But this is a real pain, since the 
more DS you have, the more maintenance work it means, especially if all 
fields are duplicates except for that 3rd content area mentioned in my 
example above.

This is what I call an unmapped area and I would like to be able to hide 
them. This has been bugging me for a long time and I have been using 
me_templavoilayout2 (or something similar) which does what the beLayout 
construct does but for TOs and not for DSs, which I found more clever.
