What the proposal is trying to achieve is as close to this as the CSS 
model allows, but *without* having to physically remove the href 
attribute from the a element.  I.e. he's trying to style the links so 
that the user won't try to follow them.  Actually disabling the link, 
without making it invisible, would be considered behavioural.

The key is that it is about using the same navigation bar code on every 
page, without physically modifying it to suppress own page links.

By comparsion, Wikimedia styles self links bold black and disables the 
link, but it is only using HTML as a presentational final form language.
