It's a good idea. Another parallel is Greenland and Denmark.

I think to refine the idea the UK could negotiate to have have the TFEU's Annex II renamed as
"Overseas and Associated Territories of Member States" (with England not being an "overseas" territory) and then list "England and Wales (minus London)" as one of those territories.

Then keep England and Wales as part of the customs union (like happens with Turkey)and institute immigration controls between England and Wales and the rest of the UK (London, Scotland and Northern Ireland).

This constitutional law professor suggests a similar course of action:

And he brings up the problem of border controls between Scotland and England.

He also suggests that the solutions possible are less than ideal....but the idea of a public registry of the inhabitants and their residence rights seems like a pretty good idea I think.
