Yes, exactly.

Almost: I wouldn't use $1 here, as $1 already is used *after* the
OSC-inlet in an "OSCroute $1" to filter out only "our" messages.
Basically "originator" would just get a receiver without any scope
done with $0, but being a global receiver which is the same for every
instance of "originator" similar to the global receive target "pd"
which is used to control various aspects of pd itself like "; pd dsp 1"
