As typical, I have a suggestion.  :-)  how about this...

On your index page, add in a JS redirect (<body
onload="top.location.href='whatever'">) to the "real" index page.  Non-JS
users will stay on the faux index page, at which point you can remind them
to enable JS, provide instructions, and then tell them to refresh.
