web form read only elements still interactive

On the web form, questions that are select_one, set to minimal appearance and also read only are still interactive to the user. This is very confusing for the users as it accepts their change in the drop down but the change won't be saved. I have found some workarounds using text, notes, jr:choice_name etc... but these are very time consuming to implement. There is also a major issue that if that question is also set to 'required', on ios one of the options in the drop down is '....' (null basically) this will make the form unusable if this option is selected as they are not meeting the required status and it wont accept any other values now. Baiscally these form elements should not be interactive if read only. I think the date selector is the same plus others no doubt. It would be good to see this fixed. Using latest version, connect etc... but has been a problem for a while.
