Cannot answer your first question, but I think the idea is worth exploring.
You would need a few things:
1) A guarantee that the content at the page doesn't change without notice, so that comments/judgements refer to the correct thing. You can use some checksum-based method for this.
2) Some consistent format and annotation, to facilitate search. Not only from a computational perspective, we rely on some pattern (abstract/methods/result) to quickly scan some artifact. So ok, we can have some guidelines the research paper need to comply to (so we need a sort of validator).
3) Some guarantee of persistency. That could be supplemented by an established archives that can resolve dead URLs....
4) A peer review sort of system, that in this case could be post-publication, maybe coupled with some new metrics.
5) A selection criteria could be useful as well.

I'm sure you know: http://figshare.com. They store different things (not executable), but no peer-review associated.
For executable content, beside Javacript&webby thing, it could make sense to publish virtual machines these days.

Pragmatic approaches are always welcome, so, this doesn't have to be about "how to we make all scholarly publishing get on the Web?", but rather for starters, "how do we make scholarly work of Linked Data and Semantic Web researchers and practitioners get on the Web"?
