Now I understand, the DDR should be the first line of defence. If you 
know that device doesn't support script then don't even bother with 
script or noscript.

If you are unsure, and use the noscript element, I would add that it 
should contain a minimal explanation and a link to an alternative, to 
avoid unnecessarily sending people alternative content they may not need 
or ever read.
