I try to take the stance that I will use js on a site, but will make sure that 
it still works for people that have it turned off.  I do the same for cookies.

The only time when we 'insist' on js or cookies being turned on is for 
subscription based sites.  With the latest browsers it is pretty easy to 
configure js and cookies on a per site basis.

Cheers,

Julian
