Developer tools have been hidden based on whether the current profile is a guest or restricted profile. The restriction for "developer tools" has not been queried.

From a product perspective, I question whether or not we actually want to allow owners to enable devtools. Kids could get into trouble? I think I'd favor removing the toggle from the UI. From a developer perspective, it's a royal pain to not have devtools.

So let's let people have devtools in restricted profiles and if we hear back from users that it's caused problems, we can back this out.
