I wonder where the "no bondholder bail-ins before 2013" comes from. Is it that 2008-13 is a five-year period that they think a priori will allow banks to make their balance sheets whole to the point where they can take a default without blowing up?

That is the only thing that makes sense of the provision. And it is confirmed by the howls from Germany over StressTest 2.0. And, per Basel II definitions many of the Landsbanks will have to be capitalized, not re-capitalized. Has their capitalization to date consisted of "the full faith and credit" of their state governments?
