I think Bishop Fellay is making an unwarranted assumption by drawing that conclusion.  Just because the Holy See gave its OK to those special cases does not necessarily mean SSPX priests can validly hear all confessions.  This is something that will have to be explicitly addressed at some point.

No, the deduction is warranted. What was at question is the licity of the act of the priest, which is unaffected by the seriousness of the case. A priest acting well is acting well, whether it's to forgive the desecration of the Blessed Sacrament, or the white lie of an eight year old, he either is or is not acting licitly. The correct deduction from these letters is that Society priests meet the conditions, period.
