Sure. I guess this interpretation by Kunzang Dechen Lingpa (who I assume you referred to) is rather unique, since tertonship usually refers to someone who has been original disciple of GR.
KDL was such a person as well.

The different sūtras in accord with the emptiness
taught by the Sugata are definitive in meaning;
One can understand that all of those Dharmas in
which a sentient being, individual, or person are taught are provisional in meaning.

What did/do other Tertons think/feel about that?

from what i've been told a dag nang/pure vision teaching is not a terma. a terma revealed from the terton's mind is called a gong ter, not a dag nang. the end of each line of a dag nang is not typically "punctuated" (in tibetan) with a ter shad, the two round circles separated by a short horizantal line. terma are.

orgyen kusum lingpa, a golokpa terton and student of Dodrubchen Rinpoche who died eight years ago, was the incarnation of Pal-gyi Senge, one of Guru Rinpoche's 25 disciples. he would often share his memories of receiving this or that teaching from Guru Rinpoche or this or that event in his life as Pal-gyi Senge.

Also, have such tertons been formally recognised?
