This is called the COM/VB/ASP development model and is fairly common. You use ASP pages to call the COM component(.dll). You can also do it with PHP. One of the reasons to do this is, as you mentioned, to web enable older systems. The success of this approach depends on how clean the original dll's code was. If is was properly designed then it should work. Another good reason for this is to hide your code from people after it is deployed.
