Does the Covenant look any better if you can perform the mental feat of forgetting the history of the document when you read the current text?
If you could push from your mind the facts that:
a. the Anglican Covenant began its life as a reaction to the consecration of Gene Robinson,
b the head of the Covenant Design Group participated in the consecration of schismatic bishops to work in the United States,
c a member of the group served on the board of the Institute on Religion and Democracy,
d. the Archbishop of Canterbury and influential English bishops have made known their impatience with the representative nature of Episcopal Church governance
would the covenant, as it now stands, be worth signing?
