Yes, I've been following WASM since it attained full browser coverage in 2017. I've built the OpenSmalltalk stack interpreter with emscripten, no major gotchas. Of course we want a WASM Cog. We're waiting for WASM to do garbage collection, and provide an API for running your own generated native code. I expect both of these to arrive in the next two years.

In the meantime, I'm getting very good results running Squeak in web browser and on Node with SqueakJS. The simple bytecode-to-JS dynamic translator that Bert wrote for it is a big win. You get a decent translation of bytecodes to native code via the underlying JS engine (V8 et al).
