But it clearly doesn't work for you, if JavaScript enabled sites that 
work just fine for a large portion of disabled users who use more recent 
tools don't work well in your tools...no?

Anyway, again: WCAG 2.0 allows accessibly-authored JavaScript. If the 
issue you're having is that you think this shouldn't be the case, then 
it's worth taking it up with the authors of WCAG 2.0 and see if this 
should get changed for WCAG 2.1 or whatever comes next.
