A few points:
- it is clearly stated to be only a first step towards full communion;
- the next step in the process needs to deal with doctrinal issues given that the SSPX bishops still have 'some reservations' about Vatican II. The canonical status of the organisation will also need to be addressed;
- it is a lifting of the original decree not (as the SSPX seem to have hoped, and the Superior General's letter to the SSPX faithful rather obfuscates on) a declaration that they never had any effect in the first place;
- it says nothing about the two consecrating bishops (who are both dead).
