What I think of the idea behind WebmedCentral:

An idea worth pursuing. It will be very successful if the peer review is objective and effective.

There could be also an added forum for critical reviews of landmark literature to be submitted by interested authors. Lead medical journals typically do not have space to discuss the recently published literature, esp. if it is critical literature.
