At an inworld meeting, Oz has given the third party viewer developers
some clarification. Though, I'd prefer policies to be written such that
they are clear in and of themselves. This doesn't mean they cannot let
some room for interpretation, but a policy shouldn't give a reader with
common sense but not knowing about the clarifications an impression that
clearly contradicts the actual intention of the policy.
@Oz: If the policy isn't being changed to be more clear, it might be
advantageous to re-state the clarifications you gave us at that meeting
(maybe summarized) here in public, as they are relevant for more people
than those who were around at the inworld meeting.
