So did we build in an feature with an option to disable it, only to disable 
the disable option in the very next release?

It's an integral part of the Header for the admin in 3.3, as such, all
methods to disable it have been, well, disabled.

You'll notice that the Links to the front end, and the account-links
(including logout) are now part of the Toolbar's menu's. Note, that I
called it the Toolbar, as that's what it is in the admin now.

For reference, here's some wpdevel posts related to it:
Admin Bar API changes:
and One Header to rule them all:
