What I think of the idea behind WebmedCentral:

WebmedCentral gives a very fair opportunity to publish without any pre-publication procedural delays. However, it will take some time to establish itself in the scientific community and might require certain controls/policies to further assure the scientific community that only the very genuine articles will be published.
