Shouldn't appcached resources be considered stale (as per e.g. HTTP)
if expired? You should be able to recommend storing a local copy of /,
but simultaneously set it to expire shortly - so a newer version will
be preferred when available, but the old copy can be used in spite of
network failure, with a grain of salt w.r.t. freshness*.

* is there a word for up-to-dateity or currentity?
