Please don't assume that everyone has unlimited data plans.  It is not
as common in many parts of the world as it is in your part of the world.

I expect the IMAP client on my openmoko phone to be able to download all
my email for offline reading, deleting, and replying on the bus with
*no* internet connectivity, and then sync all those changes seamlessly
to the server as soon as I get the next internet connection.

My Treo650 does that today.  Assuming an always-on connection (as
opposed to just taking advantage of one when it is available) is a
backwards step.
