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. 
The question is, IF a traditional ordinariate is made and IF the FSSP and ICKSP decide to join as well, what happens with the various apostolates like at St Lawrence chapel in Harrisburg or other places that have missions serving at diocesan owned buildings? What happens if the bishop is modernist and decides to take the sword to the other groups for joining up? Won't the bishop be freely allowed to boot us from buildings we don't own and rent from other NO parishes?  Mater Dei doesn't own St Lawrence, we rent it from the Cathedral. They could have a  hissy and throw us out unless we actually own the property.

It's my understanding that with the creation of the Anglican Ordinariate, Anglican Use Parishes that already existed in dioceses that wanted to join the Ordinariate actually had to formally secede from the diocese. I am sure in those cases there was a lot of negotiations behind closed doors regarding who owned the buildings, but it looks like none of the Anglican Use parishes that wanted to join the Ordinariate did not have too much trouble.  I am sure if a deal is reached there will be a lot of pressure on bishops from the Vatican to not muck this up.
