The thing is that MVC is not the happiest name for this due to architecture differences. But certainly you can conserve the spirit (intention) of the MVC pattern. 

I'm using them in a variant of it to program in a Dolphin Smalltalk style: MVP. 
There, javascript is not replacing exaclty the View. It sometimes does the View part and others the Presenter part which are programmed in the seaside components.
As architecture you have Model and Component and Component is defining (coupled) the application domain and the View domain.
