confusing wording about log checking in Introduction

Description

The introduction says “The checking operation is asynchronous to allow TLS connections to proceed without delay, despite network connectivity issues and the vagaries of firewalls.” This seems skewed towards TLS clients (e.g., browsers), yet the beginning of the paragraph seems to be talking about all log clients. There seems to be agreement that a browser ought not request an inclusion proof directly from a log, and there is no standard mechanism defined for acquiring a proof via other means. The sentence above, with its TLS client focus, seems in conflict with these observations.
