Well, it's a server-side policy decision that's optional, see:
[...] [It] MUST either (a) add the message to offline storage or (b)
silently discard the message [...].
In the case of M-Link, for instance, it's a personal option with a
server-wide default, which is in turn off by default, since that
seemed to be the common behaviour.
So yes, headline may be problematic in terms of offline storage.
