There are also those of us who have scripting turned off on occasion rather than all the time. That has got to skew the figures somewhat...

I'd be interested in a source for this.  I'm one of them, but I reckon
that I'm the only one in my company, making the figure about 1.6%, and
I would have thought that in the mass market the figure was lower.

It would be rather telling if true, given the number of even blue chip
sites (latest I found was KPMG) that blank screen without scripting, 
and the even greater number that are un-navigable without it.

Most businesses assume that 99% of the people dumb enough to do business
with them have scripting on.  Maybe the people with scripting off either
ignore advertising or can't afford to buy.
