 Surely that's only the case if you misrepresent the service you're selling
when you market/sell it ?

 It would be nice to see some stats about the percentage of 1.1 compliant
browsers that people are using, such as what percentage of web hits to
a reasonable sample of sites are made from "antiquated" browsers ? I imagine
that as soon as that figure fell below 1% then the product wouldn't be
entirely unmarketable.
