In kend.all.min.js we have

We need to make that code configurable because the workarounds concerining this problem it's buggy.

I am leaving this request open to see if there is community interest in it.

A major problem with allowing that is the user experience - if a read only or disabled input fails validation, the user won't be able to edit them in order to submit their data, which effectively locks them down. Thus, we can only assume that the application developer has provided valid value for such fields and/or that their server code knows about them and can handle them regardless of their values (if they get submitted, of course), or that they will not use an editor for showing information to the user.
