The web method is less decentralized than ledger-based DID methods according to _some_ of the types of decentralization, but far more decentralized according to other types. I think any sort of heated discussion about which of the proposed DID methods are more or less decentralized can quickly point out that some of the proposed method are controlled by a single parent company, or are incredibly technologically centralized and homogenous (core libraries in the hands of a small team of developers), etc.
