Propagating aria-disabled .. only to focusable descendants?

Description:
From <http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Member/w3c-wai-pf/2008AprJun/0150.html>:

I think it makes sense to propagate aria-disabled to any descendant that
is focusable.
We should not mark non focusable descendants as disabled -- e.g. a
heading.

Two reasons:
1. It would look odd to the AT to have aria-disabled on simple text
containing elements, images, etc.
2. It reduces the performance hit of this feature
