Great analogy! And along with the cold air, we may be letting in a few too many flies. ;)
Based on Br. JR's last post and the recent statements of Bishop Fellay, it seems that the SSPX is intent on playing a game of legalistic hide and seek to keep their "in, but out" status as long as possible. We may need to get used to that blast of cold air from the foyer. :(
The problem with waiting is that it isn't sustainable. For them to continue to function as they are, they need Bishops to ordain more priests. After the four current Bishops pass away, there will be none left. Unless:
1) They find other Bishops to join them, and continue the work.
2) Ordain new Bishops, and we saw how well that worked out for them last time.
Benedict knows this, especially #2, which is why I think there is a some urgency involved with this.
