For the stated application, IS would be of little to no benefit.

That depends. A sports photographer is going to try to shoot at 1/500s or faster. A soccer mom is going to put the camera in P mode or an action scene mode and live with whatever shutter speed she gets at f/5.6 and whatever ISO an old 1000D is programmed to use. If it's 1/EFL then IS should be helpful.
