Is a NO with the usual EMHCs, altar servers, banal music, non-Roman Canon EP, versus populum, etc valid? Yes. Does that mean it is on equal grounds with the TLM? No, of course not. Many, particularly those in question, would argue that it is spiritually deficient and harmful to the Faith.

To expect them to celebrate a Mass that explicitly goes against their charism (40 yrs of novelty versus hundreds of years of organic growth and tradition) is absurd. Just because it is valid don't make it right.

As I said, the only time I would even consider asking an FSSP, etc. Priest to celebrate an NO/OF Mass would be some crazy emergency situation where there were Priests who preferred/usually celebrated the NO/OF available to meet the needs of the element of the Catholic flock that prefers the NO/OF.

EDIT: And, as I said earlier, I would push for more Diocesan Priests to learn to celebrate the TLM/EF to meet the needs of the element of the Catholic flock that prefers the TLM/EF.
