This is a nice thought, but i don't see it happening any time soon. There are many problems today with the Church of Pope Francis so Orthodox may be reluctant to place themselves under his authority.

They need look no further than traditional catholic circles to see the living contradiction of traditional Catholics. 

Traditional Catholics: "You must submit and obey the Pope or you will go to hell"
Also Traditional Catholics: "Bergolio and his modernist freemasonic anti-church blah blah blah blah"
The Orthodox can see the contradiction.  It only strengthens their arguments.

Jay Dyer, is that you?

And the Catholic can see the contradiction of various "national" churches excommunicating each other as heretics with little to no doctrinal continuity with one another. You point at mere traditional orders and groups within the Church as if they were separate churches in and of themselves and then apply the same "Orthodox" fallacies to it.

Put not your trust in princes: In the children of men, in whom there is no salvation. - Ps. 145:2-3

"For there shall be a time, when they will not endure sound doctrine; but, according to their own desires, they will heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears: And will indeed turn away their hearing from the truth, but will be turned unto fables." - 2 Timothy 4:3-4
