BSAC is really just replicating the advice from the BDSG, which is a co-operative effort of all the agencies in the UK, so I'd assume a lot of the advice is the result of a compromise between bodies to try and hammer out a common party line more than a very specific interpretation of BSAC internal rules. I doubt many BSAC clubs will take to the water just yet, but other organisations with different cultures might do so, and that's what BDSG need to factor in. Better to have a framework for it rather than "rogue" diving with no guidance in place.
As for clubs going diving, I think we would need a little more clarity between 2 persons, socially distancing, and a dive with shore cover, or more than one set of 2 persons so to speak.

Yes, I would say dive manager is analogous to dive supervisor in commercial diving.... Commercial diving rules are going to come into play for any recreational diver course or guided dive.
So the "only" time you wouldn't be obliged to follow dive manager/supervisor arrangement would be when you were diving outside of any formal organisation ie a dive club or commercial dive operation (dive centre)... Which is pretty obvious rule, because by definition there is no organisation or structure to provide any rule base.
The basic difference is whether or not you're diving under the banner/protection /guidance of a formal organisation.
