OH2 Hue binding: Possibility to assume offline lights are off

I just switched to OpenHab2 and I am now using the new 2.0 Hue binding. I have several lights that I switch on an off using the regular light switches in my house. So if I switch off the bulbs the doesn’t have power any more and are marked as offline in OpenHab. The problem is that OpenHab still thinks that those bulbs are on.

I would suggest a new setting on the lamp things to assume that the lights switched are off if they are offline. Is this a good idea or is there maybe already a way to do this? Or is it maybe also better to just implement this as the default behaviour of any lamp?
