He's correct for a bit though. If you have the following element:

  <div id="noscript">
   <p>Foo bar, etc.</p>
  </div>

You could easily remove that DIV from the flow using javascript. And 
when javascript is disabled it would show up. Of course, compared to 
NOSCRIPT this is suboptimal at best.
