The master oscillator *may* be different.  Before I sold it to obtain an 
Orion, my Option 3 went back to the factory for service.  While it was 
there, the original crystal oven unit was swapped for the TCXO.

The point is, I don't think anyone is trying to fool anyone.  Ten-Tec 
did call the option 3 the upgrade to Omni VI.  Yes, the price is 
different.  I've not noted any cases of fraud over the issue.

If I found myself in the market for an Omni VI Plus, I'd have no qualms 
about grabbing an Option 3 563 with TCXO and saving some money.
