I don't think transparency should define behavior of a button.
Otherwise, we would have to toggle transparency besides
disabling/enabling to accomplish some behaviors.
If a disabled button did not pass the mouseclicks, it would have to
trigger the scripts me thinks. If swallowing was accepted behavior,
would it be restricted to mouseclicks, actually, mouseDown, mouseUp,
or all mouse events, or all events applicable to the object? What for
fields or other objects that can act like buttons?
Can of worms IMHO. I believe the current behavior is fine. It is
predictable, easily explained, and consistent among all objects. It
may catch someone by a surprise once a while but that is part of
