Send Mouse Events to Disabled Form Controls

Events that have no activation behavior should be sent to form controls. That is the HTML Spec specifically identifies that "click" should be prevented to disabled form controls but it appears that all mouse events aren't sent to form controls. This proposal changes that all mouse events (other than click) are sent to disabled form controls.


FireFox has shipped a subset of events (it does not post mouseup, mousedown and auxclick)
