Why not?

RevBrowser lets us integrate with JS; why not provide ways of letting JS 
integrate with LC inside the browser?

It would seem horribly limited if everything LC/HTML delivered were 
effectively self-jailed, but I'd wager that's not the plan.  On the 
desktop we have support for file I/O, AppleScript, Win Registry, shell, 
and many other means of communicating with the host system.  I can't 
imagine we'd have anything less when the host system is a browser, and 
that would mean bi-directional JS.
