As a general tool? Maybe, but how is it better than uscan, which it

Probably dehs would not be a replacement to uscan. People don't even need to use uscan to track upstream. What dehs could offer is a consolidated source of information and a big picture. It can also be a source for information you don't directly handle or would be dispersed and hard to harvest around the net.

As a website? No, not really. It's slow and doesn't present any views
on the information that are particularly useful and it's completely
immune to shell scripting. A web interface would appear to be the
wrong way to do this.

Agreed. Maybe dehs could provide information in a more shell friendly way. The web pages could just be a pretty view, used for occasional checks or big pictures viewing.
