AFAIK it is still be possible to buy an inactive product with the right 
GET or POST - there's nothing to stop you adding inactive products to 
the basket it just stops them appearing in searches.

I guess you would have to catch this in the basket code, but I haven't 
bothered as I think it would be hard to do accidentally without noticing
