Offline webapp is great, but I'd say that offline webapp is "an online 
web app that can work offline temporarily",
not really a local web app. If the entity operating an offline webapp 
goes out of service permanently, the webapp
will stop to work soon. This is one of the reasones why local web app is 
still relevant.
