Why not implement it as a regular application without the need for a
browser?  It is not harder to install than an app on your phone
("apt-get install etherpad").  And if the developers like, they may
still use JS as the implementation language.  That would be very
different from using downloaded JS.

Writing portable applications is really easy.  There are only three
mainstream OSes these days.
