Actually, under 2.k, features like breast physics, secondary attachments,
shared parcel WL etc, would have never been permitted to exist. And this
means that any feature in the future to which a TPV may conjur up, which
effects the shared experience (Ie. something one user could see but another
couldn't) will need to be developed for the LL viewer by TPV devs, accepted
by LL, released by LL before a TPV may release it themselves. Another
example would be the Mesh deformer from Qarl, if LL were not interested in
it.. none of us would be allowed to release it in our viewers.
