Well, that might work, but I'd lean more towards non-browser-based
technologies here, unless you simply wanted to use Gecko as the
rendering engine.  But if you just want a rendering engine, there are
better, more application-specific options than Gecko.  Using gecko for
shared whiteboard is more like a sledgehammer for a finishing nail.
That said, we're already going to have gecko on the machines anyway.
