Yes, and to back up this view further. I thing we (sic) should get away
from the Javascript = "bad for accessibility" mindset. JS It is just
another technology in the toolkit and whether the application or
interface using it is accessible or not depends often on how it is applied.

Basically, it is perfectly ok to use JS in developing web applications,
it just has to be done in a certain way, progressively enhanced
applications being an example.
