I did not even know this attribute existed.  My initial inclination is
to say we should be harmonising elements like <style> and <script>
between SVG and HTML as much as makes sense.  If browsers all implement
disabled="" on HTML <style>, and it isn’t considered a “bad” feature,
then SVG should support it.  I’d say this would need to be added to the
spec, though – I think the “has the same attribuets as the corresponding
element” was just meant to be an informative description, rather
than an explicit import of HTML <style>’s attributes.
