Dave and Nick – I agree that discussing something (eg. service workers) as one way that an RS might address the problem is certainly in scope, as it validates that one can accomplish the task using existing solutions.  However, I just want to make sure that we are talking about it as one possible solution and not the one and only (and/or mandated) solution.

Maybe I'm just wearing too many hats, and it's constricting the bloodflow to my brain, but it seems to be - while we shouldn't actually dictate or care how a reading system does something, we should most certainly look to solve our problems with existing tools, especially ones that are also part of a standards committee and implementation exists.

Nick – the specifics of how an RS chooses (or not) to cache are out of scope for PWP.  They may make sense for some sort of format-specific work (eg. best practices for PWP with EPUB) but we don’t care about it here.

Remember – PWP is format/packaging and implementation agnostic.   (we seemed to all agree to that pre-holidays)

The fact that an existing web technology can solve a critical use case for PWP is on-topic in my opinion, and learning about such things can only help our work. Such technologies may not be a part of the documents we produce, but saying "we don't care about it here" I think sends the wrong message.
