How ambituous is more ambitious in Doha, WTO, world trade and globalization terms?

Karel de Gucht, the EU trade Commissioner, says there is need for new goals for Doha WTO talks

His "Doha Lite" proposal seems OK to me, but an ambitious new agenda should be much more far-reaching, IMO.

Maybe it is time for either

1) a 2 speed WTO; The Mach2 WTO to include WTO members willing to move towards a US or EU type system of democratic (federal) government (not G20), or

2) How about a World Community or Union (a la EC/EU) with a WFTA (a la EFTA) for those not wishing to join the WC/WU?
