Ah yes, "your Lumberyard Project may not read data from or write data to
any Alternate Web Service"; clause 57.4 (b) under

https://aws.amazon.com/service-terms/

Curiously easy to miss...

Xenko, I guess: https://xenko.com/
Interesting history: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Xenko

Looks nice. C#, MIT license, VR ready, "experimental Linux support", and
there is an open issue about MacOS export:

Thanks, I'll have to try that. :)

Mister Blue
I also wrote an OAR converter "Convoar" which converts OARs to GLTF scenes.
https://github.com/Misterblue/convoar .

The converter does a raw conversion (good for editing in Blender, etc) and
optimized conversions -- one which does material and mesh instancing and
texture size reduction and another which combines meshes that share
materials. The layout of the vertices, etc is optimized for most GPUs.

There are several converted OAR files available for web viewing at
https://misterblue.com/oars/ .
