These aren't systems that would work transparently offline in the first
place. Major architecture and integration challenges exist to rationalize
web ad serving and the offline experience (particularly around impression
reporting). This isn't simply us taking something away: if the want to opt
into Service Worker integration, SSL/TLS is likely not the largest hurdle.
In fact, I suspect it's a relatively minor point.

As I said before, this is carrot, not stick. It in no way changes how the
bills get paid for existing content. Luddite ad networks and publishers can
continue in their current mode indefinitely.
