No, the solution is unique. In the version you suggest you would need hint A in R3C1. Hint '-' means that no letter can be seen both in the row and column from this cell.

"The same numbers may not touch each other anywhere in the grid."
This touch means "by a side or by a corner"?

They may not touch not even by a corner. It will be clarified in the final version of the IB.

Yes, you can see through the empty cells. The same principle as in standard As Easy As ABC.
