That's fine by me, as long as _something_ covers it.

StyleSheet.href is readonly, so I'm not sure what you mean here.  We were 
talking about .disabled, no?

Then you need to describe the interaction between the two properties.  e.g., 
what happens if the sheet is enabled and the node is disabled?  What happens on 
setting the node disabled?  Does it matter if the sheet is already loaded?

I suspect that having them completely disconnected is not really that useful, 
and _is_ very confusing.
