I believe that you are right. I'm not an attorney but I have some understanding of the finances involved.

What is happening is an authorization to restructure underlying loans, regardless of the CDS/CDO derivative (and SPV, okay don't ask <g>) off balance sheet bets that were made by the banks and other "servicers" involved.

In addition, where the banks reserves can't cover the credit they extended, I presume they will be "bailed out" so that they can remain solvent.

So, as you have implied, the "investors" in these derivative schemes are not being "bailed out" -- in fact they are getting hosed.
