We had a webplugin in the NaN days of Blender, it was part of our bizz  
model... too bad we failed, it's still a great concept! :)

Nevertheless, having an open source web plugin for Blender files is a  
gigantic security risk... this is not something we can (as online  
community) maintain, and it certainly not something we as Blender  
Foundation should endorse or promote.

First thing that's needed is a company (or a group of devoted  
developers) to define the design and targets for a feasible security  
level of Blender and Python. And they should have enough time to  
develop and maintain it. We should put very high demands on such  
company or developers... they should really know this security stuff  
well. :)

Until then, I'm very happy that the web plugin project is inactive.
