It's all about the economics this time, though. If the players agreed to the economics, the rest would fall into place in no time. Once a fixed percentage is agreed upon, nothing else matters much. Altering ELC and FA at that point just changes the distribution of salaries amongst the players. The net value is always the same percentage and dollar wise; therefore the owners would have no reason to care much about changing these things. For the same reason, the PA likely doesn't really care all that much either.
It's only about $$$ for both sides.
