Here's where you are in error (in my opinion) and, as a positive note, not a lawyer at heart:

You are mixing the definition of "outer space" and "in outer space". The celestial bodies are not outer space - and in fact, not space at all, but are matter (solid/liquid/gas - suns=plasma).

So - you cannot, per the treaty, codon off a section of the great void and call it your own. You are not excluded, however, from cordoning off an item of "substance" that happens to be within that region.

And if you call me a layer at heart because of this, I will hang my head in shame - but enjoy a smirk, nonetheless.
