    Yeah - and I would like to still be able to use something like

       <noscript>Note: Scripting is disabled in your browser, please refer
       to our <a href="...">accessibility policy</a> for the implications of
       this</noscript>

    regardless if I work in XHTML5 or HTML5 for the moment.

Agreed.
