The recent Karlsruhe court ruling on the Bundesbank's participation in ECB activities does in fact raise that question, although I don't think it's fully settled yet. So, hoping the problem will go away would seem to be a legitimate reason for the UK not to expend much energy on negotiating anything with the EU.

The EU was famously described as a "monument to the vanity of intellectuals".
At this time, I think that describes a number of things quite well..
I'm fortunate (or unfortunate?) enough to have been to all the former soviet states and think we have enough "Fallen monument" parks to remember where intellectual arrogance gets us.
Probably due another re balance between intellectual arrogance and intellectual humility.
