That's a pretty good idea. I was also considering making the "disabled" 
attribute take an expression of sorts (or just an ID) along the lines of 
the "relevant" attribute in XForms, which is more powerful but also more 
likely to have compatibility issues.

I've noted this your for Web Forms 3. I'm trying to keep the new additions 
to WF2 to a minimum for now. :-)

(You can see other ideas that are noted for WF3 by looking at the comment 
hidden at the end of the spec markup.)
