Making offline support a "client issue" means that every client will
do it differently, and there will be no hooks in the protocol to make
it easy/consistent.   Why _wouldn't_ you want to document offline

Ned: YES - YES.

I have felt that way for years.

In response to to Ted's concerns about off-line.

I use SeaMonkey (a Thunderbird spin) for my email. When I setup a mail
account with it, one of the options is for it to cache the email account for
offline usage.

I would think this is mostly a client issue. In a future protocol, when
checking for new message data, pull all of the summary data, and optionally
all of the body parts. Its a client issue. Save the data, or not. If you
pull it all, then the client is free to save it, or not.
