Part 3 - When Disallowed still Fallback to Newest Cache 

10        This handles the case where:
12          - user has a successfully downloads a "newest" cache
13          - server updates manifest
14          - user disallows the update (has a "disallowed" cache)
15          - user reloads the page. it is the same as the disallowed
16            cache so we issue an "error" but we fallback to the
17            old, successful cache.

If an update is "disallowed", continuing to use an old version questionable. That old version may or may not be compatible with the current server-side of the application. From the apps point of view, this client is wedged at old version. It may be better to delete the old version when the user disallows an update, so the user is disallowing the manifest and not just a particular version of the manifest.
