Well in my books cache never means 'cache forever.'  Therefore blocks 
and menus are fine - if there is some latency its not the end of the 
world for most people...  But - a few must have features are:

-static page cache 'time to live' setting
-manual 'rebuild' static page cache button of some sort
-theme change detection to 'urge' admins to update their static page cache
-setting for hook_cron - i.e. rebuild none/some/all static page cache 
items every so often
