Leave the factories as the top level object. For the factory name, say

entities in webui.js is not necessary, nor is putting every entity's
factory into its own namespace.

I think it would be even better to create only the entities that are
actually needed. So entity creation should be done after we determine
the user and the tab set for that user. What do you think?

Absolutely. I think that the check should be something like:
that.start_entities = function(){
for (name in that.entity_factories){
if (!metadata.objects[name]) continue;


and then the tab gets dropped later if the entity doesn't exist.

I don't think this approach will work for DNS. If dns_is_enabled is
false the entity should not be created either. I'm not sure inserting
this logic in the IPA.start_entities() would be a good idea. The
start_entities() should read from a list of entities to be created
instead of filtering out the entities within the loop.

Attached is a new patch that creates only the entities that are enabled and needed by the navigation tabs. It passes jslint, qunit, and essential Selenium tests.

This patch can be applied against master or your patch #221.

Officially a NACK, but I am going to integrate most of these changes into an updated verison of my latest patch, as git merging them will be too painful.
