   I just cannot see clearly how is Javascript trap relevant to
   WebAssembly as the Javascript trap is about proprietary software.

You could replace Javascript with Webassembly and the Javsscript trap
would make an equal important point.  The reason why the title
mentions a trap is that they can get caught up in where they do not
know if the software (web page) accessed is really free software or
not, and start depending on it without any idea that they have even
been caught.

Compare this with normal software, which you have to at download, with
that comes a small threshold for investigating about the program.  If
If i just point you to you can't (easily) see if
it is free software or not before you've run the program.

Web browsers make it so trivial these days to run any random code and
it is very easy to start depending on software you do not control
anymore -- without even noticing it.  Could you make this free
software? Sure, but that isn't the point here.

   Webassembly already exists. People will start making free software for
   it anyway. It is good platform for delivery of software.

If something exists, or not -- is simply a tanget.  Javascript _also_
exists, and there is lots of free software that is written Javascript.
