Is always-offline use supported?

wpost says:
I know that Pro users can set the desktop app for temporary offline use. But would RTM work well when left permanently offline?

I ask because my employer's security rules limit me to applications that only store data locally and do not sync or otherwise send data beyond my computer. I'm a big RTM user in my personal life so I would much prefer to use RTM for work too via a second account. However I am aware that the service was probably not designed with that use case in mind and might not work. So, has anyone tried this or otherwise know if this is a good idea?

How would you get application updates?

This would be on a Mac that is connected to the internet, so updating this would be no more difficult than other applications. It is not an air-gapped computer. For what it's worth, I like package management so I would install RTM via Homebrew as I do other apps, and let Homebrew take care of the updates. (And ty to the great RTM community that maintains it on Homebrew.)

So I'm not worried about app updates. I do wonder how well the app will work if my ever-growing tasks are never uploaded to the RTM servers.
