Well, the update-rc.d man page says that this will only work if
/etc/init.d/wwwoffle has also been removed.

I can't imagine why that would be the case.

Anyone, wtf is this wwwoffle thing anyway?  I don't have a man
page or an info page for it, and there is nothing in /usr/share/doc.
(Ok, google says wwwoffle homepage is http://www.gedanken.demon.co.uk,
and it's the World Wide Web Offline Explorer).
And why can't we uninstall it without also uninstalling
task-dialup (via apt-get remove)?  Does anyone have any
advice on this?

That's correct. wwwoffle allows you to download a website and browse it offline at a later time.
