yes, I talked about it with jeff in Express conference. Current plug-in just knows only how to start Rebol and few other minor things. I told openly RT that it will not be used at all - we need the ability to live inside of browser window, or ppl will regard us being proprietary technology .... But I can imagine that implementing something like this is not probably ease ... But as you stated - it would definitely BE killer app.
