I can think of *one* good reason for it being a downloadable app - when you guys disappear (and the odds of you doing so are, for the first five years, better than 4-to-1 in favor of that) I'll still be able to use the app.

Don't know who you've been talking to, but *I* would be crazy to rely upon an online webapp. I own my own copies of Adobe Creative Suite (4), Microsoft Office (2010) and 3DS Max. And I wouldn't *dream* of relying on the (possible) continuted existence of a critical-need webapp.
