Agree.

Buuut, call me sceptical: is a bit of a cop-out isn't it?

I wouldn't want any agreement where the most important subject of it is under a "wish to ensure" kind of one-foot-in-the-door sentiment.
You know the old expression

The [Swiss] Federal Council has been closely following the events in the UK for several months and is evaluating the ramifications for Switzerland. At present, many questions remain unanswered.
The Federal Council, the Federal Administration and the Embassy of Switzerland in London are in regular contact with the British government to discuss the next steps.

In the context of the Federal Council’s ‘mind the gap’ strategy, Switzerland will endeavour to safeguard the existing mutual rights and obligations between Switzerland and the UK after the UK’s withdrawal from the EU, and if possible to build on them.
