Layer visibility for viewonly users

Hello,

I’m writing as a frontend developer.
I received a figma UI design, but I only had viewonly privileges. Because of this I couldn’t see some hidden layers which were a different aspect of a UI element. I know this situation can be avoided by the designer, if he makes prototypes to show the different aspects or simply makes the design editable for the developer. However I still don’t see the point of hiding the visibility switch for viewonly users. Please make it available for everyone.

If this issue was discussed before I apologize.
Anyone faced this problem too?
