When embedding/referencing groups or layers from other projects, their visibility state is not maintained when saving and reloading the project.

In some cases it may be desirable to reference a group but set it to invisible. Currently, the root of the referenced group shows the correct visibility state, but all childs are always visible after a reload.

d02c4bef94be82dca4a4 considers visibility for embedded groups and their sublayers.
For single embedded layers, the implementation needs more thinking because the visibility is not stored in the layer element itself.
