Allow delegated non-native events on disabled elements

Currently jQuery does not call delegated event handlers for disable elements. This is to keep consistency between browsers because IE is the only browser that raises events on disabled elements (see #6911 and #8165).

It would be useful, however, if we could raise non-native events with trigger() on disabled elements and still have delegated handlers be run. Since jQuery would be handling the triggering, bubbling, and dispatching there wouldn't be any browser inconsistencies.

Fix #11382. #11764. Only prevent click events on disabled elements.

We don't want a disabled link/button to register delegated clicks, but we do want events like mouseover or custom events.

This is a compromise, there is no perfect solution. Well, the browsers could be consistent about direct vs. delegated events but *that's* not gonna happen.
