I would have thought a Web version would working by running VGM on webGL or webGPU and Python/Vectorscript on WebAssembly. No need for a VM anywhere just some nice little weight servers (like GIT hosts) somewhere to hold document and scripts and version them.

Only if we rebuilt Vectorworks completely and totally from scratch. Which would either take years to bring the web version into feature parity with the desktop version, or be really limited in comparison. Most large packages that transition to web/didn't start there run a regular desktop version and stream portions of the UI/model to a browser that acts like a terminal accessing a mainframe.
