You can probably edit-protect the data pages ("id:*"), let them readable 
without a password, but wrap the contents in (:if auth edit:). This way it 
will only be shown to users that can edit the page:

(:if auth edit:)

Please [[{*$FullName}?action=login|login]] to see this content.

This is not recommended if you have publicly editable pages, as someone could 
do OpenPage?action=edit&template=Data.ProtectedPage or (:include lines=2..:).

Note, you may also want to protect the diff and source actions in config.php:

  $HandleAuth['diff'] = $HandleAuth['source'] = 'edit';
