Using community to update text of a project distributed with Indy license?

A client needs to make minor updates to the text in a number of modules 
I've created over several years. To eliminate the back-and-forth of 
corrections and proofs, he's asked about making the changes himself in 
LiveCode. (He's never used LiveCode and doesn't have a copy.)

The question has arisen whether this would be possible if he downloads 
the free community version of LiveCode, opens the files I've created 
with my licensed copy of LiveCode, updates the texts, then sends me the 
files to package them up.

Another option was for the client to use the community version to create 
the text in text fields in a 'dummy' stack, from which I'd copy the 
updated text into the existing modules of my copy with the Indy license.

I've looked at the FAQ at

but I'm not quite clear on whether this would be allowed under the terms 
of the license or not.

Even if it's not, I'm not sure they'll want to get into this once they 
see what's involved, but I told them I'd look into it.
