Converse is made so that it can be integrated into a website where the 
user might be clicking many links and navigate throughout the site, 
thereby causing the page to regularly refresh/reload. If you don't 
cache/store the messages somewhere, you'll have to refetch them every 
single time the page loads, which is wasteful and causes notable delays.

So no, you can't always just load everything from the server.
