Another example of why you would want readonly only to apply to the UI is
calculating values. For instance, you my want to display a list of product
line items and allow the user to input the quantity and unit price for each.
The line total would be readonly and calculated based on the quantity * unit

Here, for XFE, we chose readonly-to-user. That way, one can have a 
select or a range showing data without the possibility for the user to 
change it.
