In principle you can't rely on anything that comes from the client. A javascript is useless in such a context unless it sends something to the server. That can easily be intercepted or modified.

There are a myriad of other possibilities to manipulate javscript - for example you can override some behaviour with costum js (via greaksmonkey), automatically patch it on downloading, fiddling with the js interpreter etc.

Remeber, perlmonks is regularly used by geeks who know very well how to deal with web technology. Just because you can't cheat something doesn't mean it can't be cheated at all.
