Assuming this state will be available during binding, as well as in 
form... +1. But, this will require some kind of "wt:" control markup 
anyway... Given simple example:
<table><tr><td><wt:widget-label id="x"/></td><td><wt:widget


There is a need to disable whole table, it's not enough to take out 
widget only.
