Yes, you're mistaken. The key phrase there is "alters the shared 
experience of the virtual world".  A tpv can alter individual user's 
experiences, (UI, build tools, controls, graphics enhancements) but not 
the shared experience of the world.  IE, exposing information such as 
the friend online visibility of *other users*.

Kind regards,
