Currently the renderkit docs for input specify that in decode no further
processing of a component should take place if it is readOnly or disabled.
I'd like to propose that this get modified to only apply to "disabled".
According to (http://www.w3.org/TR/html401/interact/forms.html#adef-readonly)
readonly input elements cannot be modified by the user. However, they can be
modified by a script and it IS submitted with the form.
For example. You might have a standard "datepicker" JS component. I may attach
datePicker JS to modify the inputtext then I would set it to "readOnly". This
will restrict user modification of the field but allow Script modification.
When this form is submitted I would expect JSF to process the date entered using
the date picker JS just like it would a non "readonly" input element.
The big difference between disabled and readonly is disabled elements are not
submitted with the form.
I would expect JSF to process 'readOnly" elements but not "disabled" elements.
