What you want to do is support both.  Design your message
schema so that non-essential parts of it can be pulled
instead of being pushed.  When messages are sent across
normal transport, 2-5k message size is not a problem so
just send it together.  When using restrictred transports,
such as wireless, send some information 'by-reference'.

You need to design-in flexibility from the start.
