Excellent, glad that you found out.  I reworded and pushed as

I’m closing this bug now, because it’s been a long discussion about
various issues rather than an actual “bug report”.

Oleg & ng0, please open a new bug report if you find a problem with
offloading.  Note that the subject should clearly specify a problem
(“guix foo fails with bar”, “Offloading fails when X and Y”) or an
expectation (“Offloading documentation should describe X”, “guix foo
should not override bar”).  The current title does not pass this test.
