I, too, have run into the window lock-out switch problem. It's one of those things you're not aware of because no one ever tells you and therefore, almost inevitably, causes frustration. For most people, the only way to learn about it is the way Mr. Murphy did.

In my Land Rover, Yup, window lock-out switches!  No use for that in my life, so I re-wired the lockout switch to work on the sunroof.  That's a lot more helpful, especially in the winter.  There's nothing like pushing the sunroof switch by mistake, and getting 'snowed on' :-)

I think the applicable US requirement might be "Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard No. 118, Power-Operated Window, Partition, and Roof Panel Systems." It applies to passenger cars, multipurpose passenger vehicles, and trucks with a gross vehicle weight rating (GVWR) of 4,536 kg (10,000 lbs.) or less (see http://www.nhtsa.gov/cars/rules/rulings/safety_switch/SaferSwitchesFinalRule.html).
