... the reason beeing propably because javascript isn't the same
across platforms and browsers.  it seems it is used mainly to provide
fancy buttons to pick some help-URL or popup commercials when the
mouse hovers over something.

maybe it is much easier for the site-designer to provide alternatives
for non-script parts to restrict js like that.  this in turn should
encourage us to complain if some site is inaccessible for
text-browsers.  so we should complain always about this type of
unneccessary javascript!
