Create your own html after the revlet is built is the best option. If I were
you, I would not bother changing the html that rev generates, I would
instead build new htmls from the scratch. I think rev sends a message after
the revlet is built, this could trigger the new html creation. Also, it
might have flown below your radar but checkout revletobject at it is easier than working with the
raw embed tag.
