Yes, that's exactly what I'm saying. If you have Blind Only, you should be required to make some kind of roll to define the exact position of a target location. If you can still do "I can see it, so I can hit it," that's not Blind Only.

You must teleport to a set of coordinates... even if you can see or visualize... Thus, you're always at -5, and each +1 costs 2 FP.
That's already rolled into the penalized teleport roll.
