And what is the percentage of users that intentionallu disable 
Javascript in their browsers?

This is a nice theory but in practice you can benefit a lot of 
Javascript without compromising the accessibility of your site.

I don't agree. Form validation can benefit a lot of Javascript. You 
should always do it on the server side, but if you also do it on the 
client side with Javascript you avoid the server round trip and the time 
and patience of the user that has to wait for the server to tell him 
that something is wrong in the form.
