[opensource-dev] Viewer Policy Changes

I'm pretty sure RLV doesn't modify the shared experience. Any feature of it that others can see will observe it in the same way as the official viewer. 

Perhaps I am interpreting this incorrectly?

This rule will avoid thing like the original double attachments that main viewer saw incorrectly, or that OTR chat encryption thing.

It wouldn't disallow derendering, since others on TPV's and others on official see it the same way (ie, they both see nothing happen at all and it doesn't violate privacy)

Basically, as an official viewer user, "Don't invade my privacy, don't make me see the world incorrectly."

Correct me if wrong.
