I've been doing some more research on the topic I thought I'd share:

Want a quick way to make you game to look like an app try renaming the html page created (by default index.html) to .hta (E.g. index.hta).

XULRunner (https://developer.mozilla.org/en/XULRunner) might be a good alternative from Mozilla. It let's you define web apps E.g. html/javascript that will run on your desktop as an application.

Titanium App Accelerator (http://www.appcelerator.com/) looks commercial but I believe it is based on Apache licence model. The community edition is free and might be just what we need but I haven't had a chance to test it.

Pokki (http://www.pokki.com/) Is a nice of example of web apps being rendered on the desktop. Might be nice to convert Scirra Arcade into something similar.

I also did this PoC in .Net
It includes an example application that you can use to "frame" your Scirra games, there were also some initial speed tests taken:

Remember it was just a PoC :)
