What I think of the idea behind WebmedCentral:

To provide opportunity to publish papers without the conventional peer revie process that make accesible the data for furher analysis and review such as metal analysis that otherwise remains unaccessible to the scieintific community.

The post-publication review process provides ample scope for attracting a wider review of articles.
