It's an important fact that the new structure indicates diocesan bishops won't be able to meddle with the SSPX. I guarantee you Bishop Fellay cares very much on this point.  Actually, if such a structure is created I would bet the FSSP and ICK would join up in a heartbeat to get around diocesan bishops. 

The SSPX does have its own bishops, but so do religious orders like the Franciscan, yet the Franciscans still have to obey diocesan bishops when serving diocesan churches.  The Ordinariate is basically creating a new rite which exempts the SSPX from the usual obedience due to Latin-Rite bishops.
