Since I'm not a lawyer I shouldn't comment on the license. However if
you read the Express SKU EULA you'll see verbiage around reverse
engineering, and if you read the VS SDK license (the license that covers
all native API's that you're accessing when you QueryService from your
add-in) you'll see additional terms that are relevant to your hack.
Sorry that I can't be more specific, but I'm just a developer ;-)

So Jason, the Microsoft clone with an army of lawyers at his disposal, doesn't understand the licence agreements, but he's expecting the poor bedroom programmer to understand them? Programming is hard enough without threatening lawyers letters from the chief innovation-destroyer!
