doesn't sem to be as easy as some are making it

Perhaps the prelature will just be for the priests, religious, and third order members? The faithful could just attend chapels run by the prelature even if they're not members. Opus Dei runs a large parish in my city and I'm fairly certain that most of the parishioners are not numeraries or supernumeraries.

What exactly the cannonical structures of a regularized SSPX would be is a good question. But, we should keep in mind that Fellay has said "my hope is for a prelature." Prelatures were not created with Opus Dei in mind. Opus Dei just happened to be the first one. I doubt a SSPX prelature would be exactly the same as Opus Dei.

As for Opus Dei run churches. Those are all diocesan churches which are just staffed by Opus Dei priests. Kind of similar when Jesuits run a diocesan church. Opus Dei does not own any of its own churches.  So the comparison here isn't quite accurate as SSPX churches would not be diocesan. Actually, now that I think about it there status would be very unique.
