To a certain degree this aspect of OA wormholes is one that decided to engineer by fiat, since we really hate time machines around here. We used to allow wormholes to experience significant time dilation and essentially become time machines in the setting and it ended up causing nothing but headaches.

Thanks for the answer. Is time dilation also the reason wormholes can't exist except outside a gravitational field? Or is that just an example of a limitation that a sufficiently advanced Archailect might find a way around?

I ask because I had an idea that a sufficiently advanced sophont could use wormholes inside of a star to remove large amounts of material, or add in new hydrogen to lengthen the life of the star, but then I remembered that wormholes would collapse in the gravitational field of the star.
