[3.2] Make export button optional #4484

It seems like the new element export feature currently doesn’t export data for relationship fields (including Matrix) which can make the feature a bit useless for some elements, at least from the client point of view.

I’m suggesting to make the feature optional, possibly via permissions. Configuration for every entry section, category type, etc. is probably a bit too much.

We do plan on adding a new JSON output format that would include relation info, and a built-in importer that can work with the exported JSON. Once that’s in place, I’m curious if you’d still care to disable exporting?

It would be especially helpful in the weeks until export becomes useful for all content.

But in general I feel like export and import is a feature you don’t really want to expose to all of your users.
