At the opening where crankcase gases are routed to the input silicon hose of the blower unit, there is a small pool of oil on the inside of this intake tube. ESS states this is normal, and that in itself is not the concern. The concern is that when the bypass valve shunts excess charge back through the system via the intake tube, it appears to be splashing this pool of oil. It is to the point that a wipeable film of oil can be removed from inside the ducting in advance of the MAF sensor. The MAF elements do not appear to be covered, but a film of oil is present in the housing. But the MAF recently crashed, and I have to get a new one. ESS assures me that it is nothing to worry about. I guess I am just looking for a second opinion.

Also, no change in oil level at the dipstick has been noted.
