That's more along the lines of what I was thinking when I wrote that little vignette. Had it been a real crime, I suspect the Valkyrior would have been sent to arrest Corwin (or at least escort him back to Asgard), rather than sending several file boxes of paperwork to be filled out (in triplicate, no carbon, naturally) :)
There's also the fact that he broke the seal specifically to keep his word to those who had accepted him as their God (even if he already was, they voluntarily chose to follow him). I think had he NOT done everything in his power to protect them he might have gotten into more trouble (whether "legally" or simply karmically)...
