Forgive my ignorance but I rarely use client-side scripting so it's not been an issue for me before but doesn't the lack of <noscript> go against WCAG1 checkpoints? I've always been under the impression that <noscript> was required for all javascript but maybe not so long as it's device independent. Yes/no?
