So, maybe the trad pub rules are changing. Many times people have said don't put stuff on the web if you want a traditional publisher to buy it. Apparently, if your work is good enough (or is interesting enough), this may not be the case any more. S.U. Pacat has announced that her web serial The Captive Prince has been bought by Penguin (you can read her announcement here: http://freece.livejournal.com/61483.html). Apparently, it will be released in paperback form (not just ebooks). Is the game changing?
