I am a bit annoyed by the disabled save button, but now there is actual reason to remove it. I think the use case "my js is loading slow" is more important then the use case "I left my computer on for 5 hours and I am not sure if I saved my preferences".
I will probably start removing some JS code from the preferences, see comments in https://gerrit.wikimedia.org/r/#/c/247728/
meh. "Can't be that hard, right?" *five weeks later* "argh"
Well, I suppose that the disappearing notification should handle most cases of forgetting whether or not the preferences are saved.
