I'd like to have a popular pan-European vote, but I'd dread to hold the first one on Turkey. I don't know if we can set up the institution quickly enough for people to familiarise themselves with blocking something nationally, but not on the EU level.
The problem is also that any state can still veto Turkish entry. So there's your point for institutional change.
Then again, a pan-European vote on Turkey would be vastly preferable to a set of national referenda (as promised by Chirac for France, IIRC).
So, I guess we agree...
