You are somehow correct. For the case of the online/offline buttons: they 
surely belong in a theme, not?
The ajax is somewhat functionality, but it still lives in theme functions. So 
ATM you can "switch" it off in your theme.
And ajax _should_ alway degrade nicely, so that if you do not have the 
functionality, you will have the same abilities, yet somewhat slower.
