Special Purpose Entities

SPEs have been much discussed in the context of the global financial crisis: the BIS has just released a comprehensive new report on this topic.

I think there is an opportunity for whichever country can come up with
(i) a robust set of standardised documentation for SPE’s, and
(ii) a legislative framework to support same, and
(iii) a special dispute express resolution procedure for same.

I believe that the EU is making moves towards standardisation which could make this an easier opportunity. Would I be correct in saying that English probably has primacy in SPE structures? Does anyone in banking or industry see an opportunity here?
