This still has some minor UI issues: the read-only field remains focusable (as
Lupo notes above) and gives no visual indication of being uneditable -- it just
doesn't react to typing, quite probably making some users wonder if their
browser has a bug or something.

We could gray it out with CSS and give it a high tabindex or something, but I
think an even better solution would be to just make the field hidden and
replace it with plain text: that way it's obvious to anyone that it can't be


Hidden field + plain text seems like the best solution to me; this avoids the "it looks like a field, but doesn't act like one" while keeping it visibly there for clarity. Might need to confirm it doesn't bork up the JS on the form.
