You should however be able to do what you want with the states disabledinactive and disabledactive of the buttonitem statetype widget that is used in button lists. That's just standard MythUI but for settings there is also the widgettype statetype which can be used to display the type of a setting (checkbox, textedit, etc).

Yes, that is correct. You can check out Steppes for an example, https://github.com/MythTV-Themes/Steppes/blob/master/standardsetting-ui.xml#L169.

It seems like the only themes customizing this are the different Steppes versions and Monochrome so if you update the default one most of the themes would actually benefit from it.
