If, as you say, it's "you can't pass through this door until you break down the d8 Webbing complication", but the villains still have other opportunities to act -- perhaps they can just waste time going around another way, or they can fight another hero who's on the right side of the webbing -- I'd see no problem with it.
If it's really complicating all the villains totally, then yeah, I'd think you ought have to spend the Area Attack / PP / whatever.
Right, I personally don't find it bothersome. In fact I think its a good solution to these situations. The thugs can either grab a sofa and try to batter down the d8 Webbed door, or they can spend some time running around a different way to get at Spidey.
