Ah, I'm starting to see now. Developers are only subject to the TPV
policy if they want to be listed in the directory. Users are subject to
the policy should they choose to use a TPV to connect to a
Linden-operated grid, rather than an alternative (like OpenSim)

Makes sense, but that would really mean that the TPV policies should be
a part of the Terms of Service, wouldn't it> Doesn't make much sense to
have them separated.
