It seems to me that the TPP fails to address a lot of important issues. But, after all, this is an "agreement". If there are issues that can't be agreed, then those issues are simply not in there. Could the missing issues be the subject of agreements down the road, or not? What issue in the agreed "TPP" is horrible? I can't find much.

According to the New Zealand government, many IP provisions along with others are suspended in the new agreement: https://www.mfat.govt.nz/en/trade/free-trade-agreements/free-trade-agreements-concluded-but-not-in-force/cptpp/tpp-and-cptpp-the-differences-explained/
