   - if the Web Publication itself doesn't point to a Web App as a
   fallback, it should still be possible to read the publication entirely from
   the first resource to the last (just like any normal website)
   - if it does provide a Web App as a fallback, this app can implement one
   or more affordances from the publication mode (offline access, easier way
   of moving between resources from the default reading order, TOC, user
   settings, pagination...)

The Web App itself wouldn't get in the way of another WP-aware user agent
that way.
