The exact URL requests and module names are not a public API (I use the term
"API" generally).  They can change.

The most future-proof solution is probably to behave as a browser would.  I
understand an offline program is not going to visit every separate page once. 
However, XOWA could visit one page (e.g. the main page), and download all the
<link rel="stylesheet"> stylesheets.

If that is missing something, you could do another explicit request to pick up
additional known modules that may be page-specific (e.g. ext.rtlcite). 
However, don't expect this latter workaround to be future-proof.
