Since web workers have to be explicitly managed by the developer, I can foresee memory management issues looming on the horizon. Is this a sufficiently worrisome issue, or am I just being paranoid?

I won't say you are paranoid because we've learn in the (short) history of the web that if 'something might break - it will' :)
IMHO, we don't have the same problem as in C because our JS run inside a sandbox in the browser. There are many limitation that the browser enforce us (=web developers) and we've made some progress in areas like CORS: https://mikewest.org/2011/10/content-security-policy-a-primer It will be interesting to see what are the measurements that browsers will take to make sure this powerful feature won't be abuse.
