That depends on your user base. If it's just the wider internet that's accurate, but if you're aiming at government or big corporate clients, you'd better check your analytics first.

At least in the federal government in the DC area, IE6 and 7 are all but dead, basically. While there are still plenty of legacy servers running older versions, desktops are far less behind than they were even 2 years ago.

I'm admittedly only speaking for a dozen agencies or so, but things are definitely better off lately than they used to be.

We're talking about something that prevents form data loss. If it doesn't error on IE6/7 and simply doesn't work, then that's fairly graceful degradation that provides a benefit to users on more modern browsers.

But I suppose if your userbase is predominantly IE6/7, then it may not be worth the effort for you.
