First of all, just because you ran into a couple of issues that Rev has
difficulty with doesn't mean that it can't be used for commercial business
applications... I have worked on several large-scale vertical market
business applications done in Rev (including a very successful multi-module
personal information management application for the entertainment industry)
and they are doing just fine, thank you very much. And I know many Rev
developers that have put out commercial business applications as well.

One could say the same thing about Rev and games: "it doesn't have a 3D
engine so you can't use it to build games"... a blanket statement based on
one or two features does no one a service. Each person needs to evaluate Rev
for themselves to determine applicability to their projects at hand.
