Passing off the difficulties in the endeavour (of which there are surely plenty) by telling your users that they themselves should make a technical design for you is nonsense and in poor taste. They are aspiring writers, not IT engineers.
If you can't give your customers what they want, then try to present them with an interesting alternative. Don't try to make it their fault. That's not how you run a business.
There is no universal law saying that every business has to meet all customers demands.
If there is a market, there is also an opportunity for someone to rise to the challenge. Why don’t you yourself do it?
There is an old saying I really like:
"Don’t demand of others what you are not willing to do yourself"
L&L has given an explanation for why there won’t be a web based version of Scrivener. The "interesting alternative" is Scrivener for Mac, Windows and iOS. Repeating that message isn’t a way of trying "to make it their [the customers] fault"
