Remoting is just another way to pass data between the server and the
client. It's not really different from XML sockets or name/value pairs,
except in execution details - the client still has to initiate a
connection to the server.

It has the disadvantage of being a closed format, with open-source
implementations like AMFPHP having to resort to reverse engineering to
make it work. According to people I know it's also slated for deprecation,
though I'm not sure of any real details on that.

It still doesn't completely address the offline-viewing requirement.
