While I don't fully understand the question, there is no out of the box
WSS v2 or WSS v3 way to disable  a single field  on any of the dynamically
generated data entry pages. That said, WSS v3 now allows developers to
create Custom Field Types which could provide any kind of custom
functionality, including the functionality that I think you are asking

By javascript we can do this.

It's true, using JavaScript, anything on any browser
page DOM, including all WSS pages, can be altered to look and behave
however we want. In WSS v3, I would still tend to lean toward a Custom
Field Type solution over any JavaScript solution.

When we're trying to alter a form's behavior at run time, isn't
InfoPath the better solution here?

My guess is that an uneditable field  is one where the value must
have been editable at some point or we'd be talking about a
calculated field.

So, at some point, a user  edits a field and then, subsequently, this
field is not editable while others are.

In InfoPath, this is a view switch. You also have the luxury of
switching back based on some context later such as the original
creator going back to it or after some amount of time passes.

An InfoPath form  is the ultimate replacement for the auto-generated WSS
data-entry form. But there are significant investments that must be made
to put InfoPath in place and at the loss of one of the greatest
SharePoint advantages, self-service Information Worker alterations to
the applications that they use.
