Save page as: partly as cached?

Just realized that pages that aren't loaded completely (e.g. not all images) can't be saved "as is", unless the browser is temporarily set to OFFLINE! Oops...
Otherwise, when saving a page, the download of all the missing items will start "secretly" in the background, which could be an unpleasant surprise if someone doesn't realize this, and pays per data size.
And obviously in offline mode the page is saved from cache: if the empty-cache-button is clicked before saving, only the html-file will get saved, nothing else, although on the screen the page is still displayed with a couple images and the css-stylesheet.

Example: A forum page with a bunch of HUGE images, but images blocked with the exception of the smilies and buttons originating from the forum-domain. Or download stopped in the middle of loading the huge images.

So I think a third option might be not bad smiling smiley

File / Save page as... / Web Page, html only
File / Save page as... / Web Page, complete
File / Save page as... / Web Page, partly as cached (or as is, or what you see, or as seen or shown, or...)
