Re: Freedom of Movement for EU nationals: should the Swiss bend the knee?

An emergency brake a.k.a. safeguard clause is part of the deal both Switzerland and Norway, an EEA member, have.
Norway has never used it.

CH has used it several times.

No surprise in the same being offered to the UK.
It will be domestically projected as the UK getting control over immigration.
Edit: A big IF whether the Eastern European countries will agree to it.

Seven years in the EEA is perhaps enough time to prepare for and do a full Brexit.
