You miss the points.

I meant it is constraint to require your app to be available ONLY online.
What if I don't have internet connectivity.

Security for application which is online and security
for application which is desktop (and is for instance not
connected to internet) is DIFFERENT thing.

This is wrong. This is like saying all bananas should become apples.
There are people who like to use/create desktop apps. So that statement makes no sense to me.
