Interesting. My feelings are exactly opposite. I very much dislike the 
idea that, in order to do computer algebra, I have to run an http server, 
a browser, a wiki and what else. I have 128M of memory; I want to use them 
to solve my problem, and don't want to waste them. Also, I dislike all 
browser-based interfaces.
On the other hand, hyperdoc definitely looks too old-fashioned. It should 
be (at some moment in the future) replaced by a nice program capable of 
showing non-trivial mathematics. Are there such programs? Yes, TeXmacs!! I 
don't think anything can beat it in the quality of math formulas. Why 
re-invent the wheel? TeXmacs seems the best choice available.
