We love JavaScript as long as

a) Works with all browsers. (At least IE6, Opera, Firefox, Safari, 
b) Degrades nicely.
c) There is real gain from using it.

Autocomplete fields (nice job, Thox) are a prime example. However, his 
implementation still have problems with a). And most likely, every 
implementation will have problems there. The reason for not having JS in 
Drupal yet is the job required for true cross-browser JS.
