As agents studying the languages of the 3I can show up anywhere, it's a solid cover for other sorts of agents.
Couldn't any lesser noble sneak his own agents into the system for his own purposes? In fact, except on Sylea proper, that may be more of an annoyance to private subjects than the Emperor's agents who can only afford to be interested in the doings of important people.
