As I understand it, the sage cloud is using three.js for 3D plotting. It's usable, but has some real issues. Based on my experience, jmol is still better, but has been undesirable because of dependence on java. But there is a javascript version, jsmol, that appears to work reasonably well. It's slower than java, and I think slower than three.js, but in some circumstances the quality is better.

Is there a plan, or maybe a chance of a plan, to make jsmol an option in the cloud? One of my needs is to put 3D plots in web pages, without java. Jsmol lets me do it, and from the sage cloud I can export the needed jmol archive, but it would be nice to preview in jsmol as well.

That is a good question. This isn't an answer to the cloud question, but sagenb now has jsmol as its default 3D plotter. And you can just plain old embed links to that anywhere using the Sage cell server. Here is a very simple example:
