If you're designing a new application, even one that works both
online and offline, it's not so helpful.
But if you're trying to transition an existing application, with lots
of existing URLs, then you might wish for some way to handle these
URLs with query strings. I could imagine a similar issue if YouTube
was creating the "offline mode for YouTube".
However, it may be asking too much of the offline design to
accommodate this. The query string is part of the URL, a part
normally parsed only by the server, and it's hard to see how to fit
