Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

The agreement may be so minimalist that UK negotiators will have difficulty justifying any financial settlement in return which, again, makes any agreement difficult if not impossible. Some issues, like the Irish Border, may be sidetracked for agreement "later" possibly as part of a separate bilateral deal subject to EU blessing.

I don´t think the EU can "sidetrack" the Irish border issue. In your scenario Britain will be a "third country". Which means border controls. Otherwise the USA, China ... will involve the WTO citing the non-discrimination rules.
