I am afraid, you are confusing something. Your palette and options 
would be pretty much the same. When using RevCGI (or RevServer for 
that matter), the entire GUI that your users see is the one produced 
within the web browser page. Nothing native to LiveCode. What you 
seem to be talking about would require using Revlets (but that 
requires the plugin to be installed on user end) or a desktop app 
(even thin app requires installation of a program on the client 

Something simply does not add up in what you say ;-)
