We need to see how this works out in practice. The existing Anglican Rite RC parishes are in practice neither fish nor fowl, whatever their theological status. All but the most Catholic leaning protestants are hesitant because of the "popish taint," and the traditional RCs appreciate the liturgy, but always have a non-AR church nearby they can attend. For some such as the Traditional Anglican Communion, this is a perfect match. It will be interesting to see how others, especially those with formal or back door connections to the Anglican Communion, react.My guess is many protestants, seeing the downward direction their denominations are headed in, will decide that salvation is worth a mass--and a pope.
