How To: Poor Man's Oil Breather/PCV Blockoff
This is the poor man's way of blocking off hot PCV air from re-entering the air intake on your SHO. Thanks to Cuchun as I saw this done on his GPR-SHO conversion. All you need is 3/4 heater hose block off and a $7-8 stainless breather from Pep Boys................

I would think on any boosted engine, you will see increased blow by. So if you just vent this into the engine compartment, I'd think sooner or later, you will get an oily mess dripping around. Water vapor, and and overly rich situations will just make the goo appear faster.
My point is, why not take your nifty idea here, and instead of routing it to a breather element, instead route it into an oil vapor canister like they sell at Jegs...
it does add cost.
