Of course it'll still post.  The data will just be in the neutral field
rather than the expected field.  

If you are contemplating supporting browsers that don't have JavaScript
enabled, then the presumption would be that you need to install logic on the
server to handle the cases.  That being said, why both with all the hoopla
of renaming form fields on the client side depending on which radio button
is selected?  It would be a universal and ultimately less labor intensive
solution to just do the work on the server in both JS and non-JS cases.
