From your link:

'Scottish First Minister Nicola Sturgeon reacted to reports that
Northern Ireland could retain "regulatory alignment" with the EU
by saying there was "surely no good practical reason" why other
parts of the UK could not do the same. ...'

The odds are now that sufficient progress has been made to proceed to
the next phase of talks including trade which has to be a good thing.

It seems the DUP are OK with the phrase 'continued regulatory alignment'.

A no deal scenario is looking much less likely now.

From your link:

'... Although the wording of any proposed deal on the Northern
Ireland border is yet to be confirmed, the Democratic Unionist
Party MP Sammy Wilson, was unhappy with what had been
reported so far.

"We've made it quite clear that we will do nothing that would
separate us from our main market , which is the United
Kingdom - so how could they even deliver on such a promise,"
he said.'

They weren't, well apart from corporation tax, abortion, divorce, homosexuality, gay marriage...
