That's certainly one possible direction.  From one perspective it would be easier to build the interface using desktop tools, and actually the whole app may be easier.  But it would be much harder to test whether the edited template is any good.  I think it would require users to setup PHP and Apache on the local machine.  On the web, the interface may be harder, but you have near-instant feedback as to your changes.  

Please explain why you think a desktop tool is better than a webtop tool.
