This would allow for much better tracking of who actually disables JS. Yes, tracking, but actually beneficial in this case. I'd imagine it would be a lot easier to make a business case for a limited version akin to mbasic.facebook.com for a lot of devs if armed with hard numbers.
On the other hand, it may also be just another datapoint for fingerprinting. However, there's so many of these already, that the benefits probably outweigh the cons here.
@MatejLach it would also be another way to fingerprint users :x
