Pope Benedict and Traditional Anglicans

~from Canterbury Tales
Vatican insiders say that Pope Benedict XVI is scrutinizing the matter very closely and believes that the Traditional Anglican Communion (TAC) is setting out a path that other Anglicans will follow.

Here is a related story from the Catholic Herald.

I went to The Catholic Herald article and read this:
Cardinal Walter Kasper, president of the Pontifical Council for Christian Unity, told The Catholic Herald: “It’s not our policy to bring that many Anglicans to Rome.”

The cardinal’s comments refer to the Traditional Anglican Communion (TAC), a rebel group which claims to represent 400,000 people. Its bishops sent a letter to Rome last month requesting “full, corporate and sacramental union”.
Not the policy??? What in the world does that mean? Is there some quota for Anglicans converting?
