[whatwg] Application cache update while browser in offline mode

When application cache update is invoked by document load that is 
completely fetched from offline application cache while the browser is 
in offline mode what exactly should happen?

Let's say we always want to have one of the onxxx events on 
applicationCache object get called. In case the browser is in offline 
mode (including user switch to offline mode manually) the only 
reasonable event seems to be onerror call because the server could not 
actually be reached. The spec says nothing in particular about behavior 
of the update process while browser is offline.
