Just a UI comment - it's not usually a good idea to present an enabled control that can't be changed by the user - it sends a mixed message to the user, especially if they were able to set it at one point and now can't. Personally, I would do as you are suggesting and make a "flat" static image that looks different enough from the checkbox control so it can't be confused. But if you're going to use the checkbox control, I'd suggest making it look different than a "normal" checkbox control - maybe italicize the text, or add a color overlay graphic effect, or some such.
