yes I know what you mean. In my case I think it would be nice to be able 
to work without connecting the computer to a network. Specially being 
able to set the BPM with the argument. Another scenario would be when 
solo rehearsing a part of a piece developed for group network 
performance, if there is no wifi connection the BMP and messages wont 
work. But I agree it is not the most common scenario nowadays.

one more thing, I would like to have a toggle displaying the connection 
status, is there an specific message the syncjams object issues when the 
connection is ready? I am checking but I cannot see any coming out of 
the object that I could use for this.
