That phrase is evocative, but it isn't concrete.  It could mean many
things.  To me, it suggests the idea of a web site that people
interact with through a particular Emacs Lisp program.  Is that what
you mean?

If a web site intends users to run some specific Emacs Lisp program,
the way to do this and respect the users' freedom is to release
that program like any other free software package.  That way, users
can make and use modified versions.  Users and distros can release
and maintain their versions, too.

But I don't see that this has anything to do with the question
of Emacs and Javascript.  Javascript plays no role in it.

If you mean something else, could you describe it more clearly?
