           Summary: add a disabled attribute to link and style elements

(note: this was submitted as an HTML4 erratum looooong ago to the
 XHTML2 WG ; I am surprised the current HTML WG did not get it in
 the list of HTML4 errata)

The DOM Level 2 offers a boolean 'disabled' attribute on the
StyleSheet interface. This boolean attribute is _extremely_ important
to content editors because it allows to see how a given stylesheet
affects the rendering of a document.

But this boolean DOM attribute has _always_ raised an issue: it's
impossible to save the enabled/disabled status of a stylesheet and
that is a serious problem for content editors.

I then recommend the addition of a companion html 'disabled' attribute
on <link> and <style> elements matching exactly the DOM one.
