Turtles All The Way Down

Okay, I finally read through all the text and run the samples.
What is not clear to me:
1. Why do the bytecode stuff? JS seems to be a perfectly good code 
representation to me and it can be run much faster compared to a naive 
bytecode interpreter or compiler written without the resources of the 
Chrome/V8 team.
2. Why do you want to serialize the stuff? Is not it enough to serialize 
just the JS code + screenshot and on load run it?
3. Why is the pervasive undo necessary? Only for debugging?
BTW cool project, that is exactly what I wanted to do, now I do not have 
to... :)
