Devs for other grids that don't need to agree to LL's policy probably
wouldn't have anything to worry about at all, especially if they included
EULAs with the right terms. As for residents, I wouldn't say their account
becomes 'unsafe.' However, my (emphasis on my) interpretation of the policy
is that you would be "responsible" (read: liable) to LL for the results of
your code.
