Surface RT: No SkyDrive offline synching possible

I love my Surface RT. Fast, smooth, elegant this is the productivity tool I have been waiting for except in one important regard: there is no SkyDrive offline sync. I'll repeat that: there is no offline access to documents. Take a look at the Microsoft Answers thread and Microsoft evangelists like me are being driven to distraction. Some are even returning their RTS as, for them, this is a 'deal breaker'. I do hope this is the NUMBER 1 priority for Microsoft Modern UI app developers as being unable to access and synch offline content via SkyDrive makes the RT rather hamstrung for work purposes. And it is not as if there is a DropBox alternative :-( What a shame. The (almost) perfect product badly compromised.
