Bebo Application Development - Why no Javascript!!

So, I've built a Facebook application which uses the Facebook Javascript Sandbox. I mean, this is Web 2.0... of course it uses Javascript!

So, Bebo have (for a while now I guess) supposedly been code compatible with Facebook... however this seems to just be the FBML (or SNML as it now seems to be called). This is great.. but the lack of any form of JS support reduces the impact of being code compatible with Facebook.

I'll have to either we write the application to be rather static.. or rewrite it to not use any FBML and put it all in an iframe.
