An ex cathedra definition or document of definitions (anathemas, condemned propositions) has to be specific in what is taught or condemned.  Declaring that Vatican II must be strictly interpreted in light of Tradition doesn't mean much if it doesn't specify exactly how Vatican II conforms with Tradition.  What is needed is a new syllabus which succinctly teaches Catholic doctrine and which uses long-standing theological terms employed by the Church, as such terms have very specific meanings and allow little to no room for misinterpretation (not coincidentally, Vatican II avoided such terminology, which is a prime reason why we're even in this mess in the first place).
