Oh, I am sure that this will be a major obstacle in future negotiation and it has to be resolved before we can dream of joining the EU. :)

To be honest I don't think it would be a major issue on joining the EU.  Norway is not hunting whales for commercial purposes only for scientific reasons and it was not a major issue in 1994 and I doubt it will be in the future.

Otherwise agreed, including with your analysis upthread.
