Comment(by davesgonebananas):

 Whilst I can see that you would want to maintain accessibility on a public
 facing web page, I don't believe these guidelines are meant to apply to
 web apps and/or administration functions.

 Basecamp, for example, is one example of a really popular web app that
 doesn't work at all without javascript enabled in the browser.

 Gmail will only work in "basic html" mode without javascript - and you
 have to figure that out for yourself.
