The article clearly states that the ordinate would be proposed only after resolution of the doctrinal questions, which is the same line the Society has held to. It will be a true miracle if a doctrinal clarification that satisfies the Society comes from Rome. The other option is unilateral regularization, but with that Rome would have to eat some crow. They would have to announce after the doctrinal talks they found the Society's positions to be acceptible within a range of possible interepretations of Vatican II, a more or less direct refutation of John Paul II's determination in Ecclesia Dei. Pray God willing it happens, unilaterally would probably be the only way at this point.

Maybe since this is such an exceptional situation, Pope Benedict will actually make an ex cathedra declaration mandating the most traditional interpretation of VII possible, and correcting what can't be given an interpretation in light of tradition.  Not likely, but it would be exiting to see!
