Sure that can work.  I haven't looked at Refclock 46 in any detail though.

It's TPV not TVP and yes it's time-position-velocity.  This is all
"explained" here: <http://www.catb.org/gpsd/gpsd_json.html>
WATCH and VERSION are commands sent by the client to the server.  TPV and
PPS are responses sent by the server to the client.  I'm sure they're fully
supported in your instance.
