One possibly wrong way to do this would be to create a subschema:

class Address(colander.Schema):

class MySchema(colander.Schema)
    private = Address()
    public = Address()

This will render each address in its own fieldset.

Another would be a custom address widget.

Neither is entirely satisfactory in every context.  I'd like to provide
documentation that would allow Deform widgets to be used imperatively in
a template, but I don't have it.

There's a readonly mode for the entire form.  But there isn't a readonly
mode for individual widgets on a form yet.

Schema binding and the "after_bind" mechanism could be used to do this.
