Question for our Readers

Cannot Protestant converts to Catholicism select any of the 21 Catholic Churches in union with Rome?

That being the case, can't the Eastern Catholic Churches provide a sort of alternative to the "Pastoral Provision"--which is to say, can't a Protestant interested in being in communion with Pope Benedict XVI, gloriously reigning, become an Eastern Catholic priest, retain his family, and not suffer the constant culture shock of going against the celibate grain in the Roman Rite?

Obviously, such a person would surrender his Western liturgical patrimony.. But it seems to me that such a thing should, in theory, be possible. If it is, how come we don't hear about it actually.. happening?
