You could still say that UAs with scripting enabled should set noscript {
display: none } or equivalent.  Then it would be like <video> fallback,
basically.  The resulting DOM would be different from text/html, and in some
cases it would cause issues, but there's no reason it can't work for common
things like

<noscript><p>This is a JavaScript game, so it will not work in browsers without
scripting support.</noscript>
