No. If you are in Switzerland precisely because of the EU free movement provisions (which also apply here) and have now voted to remove that privilege from everyone else in your position in the future you have yourself lost the moral right to continue to benefit from that arrangement. As was explained in Odile's post I quoted.
No, definitely not. Many of us arrived here before the Free Movement Agreement between Switzerland and the EU came into force. Whether there were quotas for non-EUs before that I can't remember, but specialists and high level positions will still be open to those who qualify. And Switzerland could well reach an agreement with the UK separately to continue to allow free movement of UK and Swiss nationals to each other's countries.
