Ok, I'll just write it here.  Issue-117 is ill-informed.  <noscript> is
both quite popular and quite useful.  It can do things that no other element
can do, which is why folks use it a lot.  In particular, developers can use
<noscript> to defend against threats that (as far as I can tell) cannot be
defended against with other mechanisms.  Finally, this business of firewalls
striping JavaScript is BS, as far as I can tell.
