I was afraid the answer might be something like that. ;)

Do they expect every one of their clients to download and install a 
plugin just to view their web page.

This client sounds like that have a fundamental misunderstanding of how 
the web can integrate with their business needs.

Given that Transcript is arguably more flexible than JavaScript and 
JavaScript is a simpler format than stack files, it may be easier to go 
the other way around, writing an exporter in Transcript which write the 
JavaScript needed for their app.

I'm doing this now with one of my clients, and it's a bit of work but 
when we're done it's all template-based so the client will be able to 
update their web page using the latest content in their Rev app with the 
click of a button.
