You are right that currently the only way to set dates as disabled is by setting a minDate-maxDate range. Then, the dates out of that range will be disabled.
However, since your scenario seems quite reasonable, we are going to add a way to make cells disabled based on the date that they represent as in your requirement. The new feature will be included in our Service Pack release which will arrive in early December.
Thank you for the suggestion.
