We're looking for a SCOM 07 SR2 monitor that will tell us if someone has disabled UAC on a Windows Server.  Has anyone ever seen or created such a monitor.

If not, my only other thought is to create a rule that will monitor the specific event description and alert if it is found.

I've just checked a SCOM install and can find no way to achieve what you are after.

Here is some information on which registry key you can check to see if UAC is disabled:

And here is an article on how to monitor regkey's

The combination should provide you with a solution.

SCOM however is not the best tool to check configurations, have a look at SCCM and DCM for a more complete solution.
