    Repository for design and specification of the Component Model

    Read this bit again, it feels very bizarre to me and is like they're misunderstanding how server side development and containers work...?

    > The whole isolation model that keeps WebAssembly from being able to attack the hosts through the browser was the same kind of [security] model we wanted on the cloud side,” Butcher explained.

    I then went to the fermyon.com website, and their first line says

    > WebAssembly-powered cloud tools

    And later in the page leads to the WASM 'component model' at https://github.com/WebAssembly/component-model/blob/main/des... which actually mentions that!

    > Embeddability: design components to be embedded in a diverse set of host execution environments, including browsers, servers, intermediaries, small devices and data-intensive systems.

    So now I'm extra confused. WASM lets you run compiled languages like C# in the browser. You can already run that on the server side. You can run it in a container. What problem is WASM solving here? Unfortunately the language is hard to follow so even if they have answered it, it's not very accessible.
