I can see that we will cause very considerable trouble within the EU on leaving.

Look at another analogy: low-cost airlines. The ones which have succeeded are exclusively those which were not created by large national airlines, such as BA, KLM, Lufthansa etc. Why did they all fail? Because their internal and financial culture was that of a major, subsidized, corporate national carrier and could not be altered and was incompatible with the needs of a low-cost carrier.
The same applies to the EU, which consists of a stubborn, centralization-inspired, pampered, champagne socialist thinking which will never be altered.
You seem to be myopic and oblivious to the fact that the EU is a POLITICAL entity which as such will never metamorphose back into a non-political trading-only bloc...
We tried to change the EU and the EU was not prepared to even accede to those relatively small changes.
But a clapped out car will often yield a good engine, or other useful parts.
