It would be nice to have a :readonly form filter (readonly="true"), similar to :disabled, for complex forms that need immutable inputs that still get submitted with the form action

You mean a way to filter in or out readonly inputs in a form inside a selector?

If so, you can do this like this already:


// To select all readonly inputs in form with id "form_id"
$("#form_id input[readonly='readonly']").serialize();

// To select all inputs BUT readonly ones
$("#form_id input[readonly!='readonly']").serialize();

Look at the attributes section of this page for more details:
