In my view, scripting only sites are only acceptable in a closed
environment, where you know that scripting is permitted and available.

It is certainly not necessary for application and I think, whilst it
generates pretty bad HTML, that even the standard controls in ASP.NET
don't require scripting, although they will work much more responsively
if it is available.

Scripting is a pre-requisite for most browser based security attacks.

If you are selling an intranet product, you can make scripting support
a pre-requesite (the customer doesn't have to buy it), but if you are
serving the general public, there are very few cases where client side
scripting is fundamental to the application.
