On home screens it only removes the icon/widget, in the app drawer is uninstalls the app.

You are uninstalling the app if you do it from the app drrawer.

If you go into Settings | Apps and choose any app you can freeze it natively. Think carrier bloat for when they start releasing OTAs or devices with JB. I only tested this with the stock browser on my GNex when it was first released as the Nexus devices don't come with unremoveable bloat.
