Indeed - something for others to pick up hopefully :-)

Yeah the WM(T)S dialog could get a lot of love... It is quite
complicated and the user experience is not great.

I am not sure XYZ layers should be even handled within WM(T)S dialog -
there is nothing like GetCapabilities, layer/style/crs selection etc.

XYZ layers would still deserve some kind of configuration GUI - apart
from URL, users should be able to set min/max zoom levels. The current
solution was just a quick way to make XYZ layers available to users...
