Melkite, what about the Roman definition at Florence?

The Orthodox only deny that she was taken to heaven without dying first.

The Orthodox didn't accept Florence.

Pius XII leaves it an open question as to whether the Blessed Virgin died before being assumed.  Historically, Franciscans have maintained that she did not experience death, while Dominicans maintained that she died first.  Either belief is acceptable according to the dogmatic statement.

And yeah, not accepting Florence is a problem, but as SaintSebastian points out, they really hold what is closer to a sedeprivationist approach to the Papacy, being loyal to Eternal Rome rather than the heretic who happens to have nice white robes in the actual city of Rome.
