If you add visibility rules to panes in your panels there are cases when whole region or even row/column become empty. In some cases we are interested not to show such region's/row's/column's wrappers.
Here is patch for flexible layout managing this situation.
- added checkbox "Hide element if empty" on row/column/region configuration form (flexible layout designer);
- added logic to remove element wrappers if they have empty content.
