Angela,

there are problems with using javascript, and graceful degradation is 
not to be compared with <noscript>
even given that your users have javascript enabled, many sighted users 
may have fine motor problems negotiating drop down menus.
Jim Ley has tried to create an accessible drop down menu, and we are 
not that happy with the result.
anyway that and more is linked from Client-side Scripting Techniques 
for Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.0
found here: 
http://www.learningdifficulty.org/develop/script-techs.html, this 
document is nearly a year old, and needs contributions
