This is expected behavior. 

In order to create a more dynamic, flexible, and interactive UI, we're 
increasingly using JavaScript in Galaxy. We believe that the JavaScript 
requirement is a reasonable tradeoff for what can be done using client-side 
scripting.

Good idea; we plan to implement this soon.

Best,
