If trads would admit this, then the wall between sedes and other trads crumbles.

I think the main difference is in the understanding of Vatican I.  There is the office of the papacy and there is the occupant of the papacy.  Sedes believe that the office is perpetual, not the occupancy (ie. the papacy can still be perpetual without an occupant).  Other trads believe occupancy is also perpetual.  The reading I have been doing has led me to believe that this is the main difference in their understanding of Vatican I.
