However, I'm now willing to commit myself to so many single points of failure (network connectivity, continued interest in the product on the provider's part, provider uptime, potential differences of opinion regarding the importance of various potential features, etc.)

I would think that webapps in the future will be able to run offline and be packaged in a download.
I guess when they solve those 2 problems you'll love webapps?
