This is something we just haven't gotten to yet.  We anticipate that 
development on WebProtege will become more responsive after we've done 
the 3.4 release for Protege standalone.  We are maintaining a roadmap 
for WebProtege development on our wiki.  There is a section where people 
can add feature requests.  I added your request:

Not really.  We've put most of our documentation efforts so far into the 
installation and run process (the admin's guide) and the developer's 
guide so that developers can compile and run from IDEs.  We next want to 
document the plug-in infrastructure as we hope people will take 
advantage of the extensibility.  If you have more specific questions 
about the design, we could answer them here on the discussion list.
