Most telling quote about Iranian nuclear arms deal: Do you really want a treaty that depends on "goodwill" from both parties to work?

Here is a quote from the very end of an article in the WSJ:

“The technical obstacles can be surpassed with goodwill and diligence, but political hurdles can turn into poison pills,” said Ali Vaez, senior Iran analyst at Crisis International, an international conflict resolution group. 
“Neither Iran nor the U.S. has ever implemented such a complex quid pro quo. . . .
How good is a deal that depends on the "goodwill" for the two parties involved to make sure that the treaty works?
