Yes. Suppose Bugzilla had offline support. The Bugzilla UI has a bunch of
links it with with different query parameters (e.g., bug numbers). Bugzilla
running offline could take those parameters and use them to look up a local
database and populate the DOM.

Maybe if we force offline apps to all be single-page then this isn't an
issue but I don't think that's a good idea.

"Two men owed money to a certain moneylender. One owed him five hundred
denarii, and the other fifty. Neither of them had the money to pay him back,
so he canceled the debts of both. Now which of them will love him more?"
Simon replied, "I suppose the one who had the bigger debt canceled." "You
have judged correctly," Jesus said. [Luke 7:41-43]
