The part about French banks I don't get is why bonds to own subsidiaries are to be considered as a risk equivalent to that faced by foreign banks holding sovereign bonds. Can't companies be much more flexible about rollovers and even haircuts in that case?

Regarding the ECB, what is your thinking about that €50 billion exposure? Could a default on that mean, as argued, an actual (or at least perceived) risk to the ECB itself? (Where I am not even sure whether that is supposed to be a liquidity, solvency, credibility, or some other crisis.)
