IANAL, but that seems correct to me. The TPV policy does not regulate
what people can and can not make on the internet. It is not a gag order
preventing you from writing whatever code you like. From what I can
tell, the policy just says that it is against TOS to run viewers that do
X Y and Z. If you publish a viewer that is designed to connect to OS
and it just happens to also connect to SL, that is not your problem.
That is LL's problem.
