It IS an oversimplification. If you've inferred this from his 1905
paper, then you've oversimplified. The statement in SR is actually
quite a bit more precise.

That's correct, but the Lorentz transforms are there, and though the
*application* of those to the twin puzzle is not addressed in the 1905
paper, this does NOT mean that SR contains no provision for it. The
1905 paper is not a complete reference for SR in any way, shape, or
form, nor should you construe it to be. The twin puzzle was not even
formulated until 1911, where it was provided as a useful exercise in
fleshing out something that was not addressed in the 1905 paper.

Your statement that SR makes no provision for the compression of time
for a clock turning around is an oversimplification on your part.

There ARE NO paradoxes. There are puzzles, which SR provides a
complete and consistent resolution for, provided that you sweep away
some oversimplifications.

I just told you a couple.
