Also, would you want the Latin church to change its discipline of mandatory priestly celibacy within the Latin church itself?
it was always a tradition (small t) so I couldn't care less if they kept it, but it seems your Pope is maybe wanting to change that.

Even in the west (West) it wasn't always mandatory, I don't think.

It was enforced surprisingly late, actually, and even afterward was enforced laxly in some areas and periods.
