Thanks for looking at this, Mario, but I'd rather not document this attribute, for the reason stated on the PR when I closed it:

"I'd like to avoid documenting this attribute, as it's really meant for internal use by the configuration machinery. I realise that it's named disabled rather than _disabled, which might indicate that it's public, but it isn't meant to be, and the name can't be changed now for compatibility reasons, in case some code somewhere is relying on it! I don't want someone to ask for "disabled" to be explicitly supported in configurations, for instance - I can currently argue that it's not meant to be public, as it isn't documented."
