MVC in Rev?

I've been reworking my framework and its data management engine to
explore ways it can shorten my development time even more. Since MVC is
the buzzword du jour, I've been looking into ways of implementing MVC in
Factoring code, data, and presentation is generally easy in Rev, and
with getProp and setProp it's not hard to establish triggers for
updating UI elements. But as for MVC per se, I'm not yet certain that
particular OOP pattern is a good fit for Transcript.
With Cocoa it makes a lot of sense, mostly because Cocoa is inherently
OOP and the MVC classes are built in from the ground up. There it fits
like a glove; in fact, it *is* the glove.
But if we step back from the specifics of MVC implementations in other
languages and look instead to the goals it serves and the benefits it
provides, I'm left wondering:
Are there simpler ways to get the same productivity benefits in Rev
without adhering to formal definitions of MVC for other languages?
