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.
