Hi Mike,
  I looked at the Std. HTML Renderkit docs and it doesn't mention
anything specifically about how "disabled" should be handled with
respect to options. That said, this sounds like a bug to me. If the
component is "disabled", shouldn't we render "disabled" on select
element, applying the disabledClass in addition to disabling the options
that are disabled.
Roger, does the Spec need to clarify this or can we just fix this in the
RI ?
