The IM profile (in section states things like "the server SHOULD either (a) store the message offline for later delivery or (b) return a stanza error to the sender, which SHOULD be <service-unavailable/>.". Does the error apply even if there is a hint that the message should not be stored, or if some other rule (such as in XEP-0160) has precluded the message from being stored offline?

I think not. But Justin and I never finished XEP-0226, so it might not
be relevant anymore (or perhaps it needs to be updated).

Thanks for the feedback. :-)
