You can totally field Shadowsun, Darkstrider, Aun'va, or any of the Tau characters in a non-Tau detachment. These characters all share the "Tau Empire" keyword, as do all Tau units. However, since the "Tau Empire" keyword confers no bonuses.
The benefit of doing this would be that, even though the models in the detachment wouldn't get their sept tactics, they would still have the proper keyword, letting them be buffed from other models in other detachments. This would be particularly effective if, say, Hammerheads didn't benefit from sept tactics. Here's an example:
Commander - VIOR'LA
10x Fire Warriors - VIOR'LA
TAU EMPIRE Detachment
Shadowsun - T'AU
Hammerhead - VIOR'LA
In this case, the Hammerhead wouldn't get the Vior'la sept tactic, but it would be a legal target for the Commander's buff.
