I think this is the correct way to support what you need. Just
implement this in your special form.
Accessing objects with a page or form where the user does not
have the permission for, should by default run into an Unauthorized
error. If, like in your case, this should not happen, just implement
what you need.
I don't think that the form should ignore the default permission
concept and show a form without content or partial content by
default. The reason for this is that a user does not get forced to
login if he has not the permission for e.g. Foo.B. Let's say
probably an Unathorized User could access Foo.A but not Foo.B.
After login the unauthorized User will become UserA and he whould
have access to Foo.A and Foo.B. If you use your special partial
rendering form, the Unauthorized User whould not get forced to
login by an Unauthorized error. This is the reason why I belive
that the form should not render partial content if the user has
no permission. This should allways be a special form implementation
which reflects your security concept.
