No exploration of WebAssembly has been done. This would effectively be a 
new platform for Java and JavaFX (i.e., it isn't just a matter of 
bundling up a Linux app in a "WebAssembly" blob as an alternative to an 
rpm). Getting an FX app (or any Java app with native code) running in 
WebAssembly would need to be done first. While it might be an 
interesting area for somebody to explore, there are doubtless many 
challenges that would need to be overcome before worrying about how to 
use jpackage to package it all up.
