Would it be at all possible to store that data on the server like any 
other web app would do?

The biggest obstacle to adoption of the RevWeb plugin is the truly 
frightening warning dialog which is absolutely necessary when a 
server-based component attempts to write anything it wants to a user's 
local drive:

<http://revjournal.com/blog.irv?pid=1262632837.378884>

It simplifies your user's experience, and benefits the Rev community as 
a whole, to use server storage wherever possible.
