I think the idea is to have Scheme running on a server
communicating with Javascript code running on the browser. 
The communication should be written in such a way that the
programmer doesn't have to be aware that some code is
written in Scheme and some in Javascript.

The Hop project (http://hop.inria.fr/) does this with an
imperative GUI model.  I prefer the Flapjax
(http://flapjax-lang.org/) GUI model (a reactive system)
but so far the Scheme integration is missing.
