[whatwg] In AppCache web apps, images from unpredictable domains won't load

Not loading cross-domain images in e-mail messages is a standard privacy
feature e.g. in Microsoft Outlook.  (Indeed, that means that Microsoft
Outlook does not allow any external images, only attachments).

The workaround, to save as a HTML document and view in browser, should work.
If the images are important and viewing them stand-alone makes sense, the
user can also use the URL from image properties.

Therefore I do not think this particular problem is worth fighting with for
off-line Web applications.

IMHO,

Chris
