Yes, it's marked "denied" if you can't open it.

No, the go-offline thing didn't make any sense in most situations.  The
offline/online thing is a global Gnus thing, and if (say) your IMAP
connection to Gmail fails, it makes no sense to put Gnus offline with
respect to the other servers.

So I think the current behaviour makes the most sense.
