Probably a box ticking exercise. Not formally a member but having virtually all the trappings of full membership, minus maybe two or three points of lesser significance so that they can claim its not really membership at all.

I'm not convinced personally, but if they want a face saving way out of the problem, it will probably be something like this.
And how exactly would this get approved? There is no provision for anything like this short of a treaty change. That is the problem with all of these kind of hairy fairy solutions, they have no grounding in what is actually achievable!
