Issues like the right of return or control of holy places are irrelevant unless there are going to be 2-states and - everything else being equal - unless there is an international border clearly there are not 2-states. The logical first place therefore for both parties is to present their version of where they would like the final border to run. Just because Israel does this does not commit it to accepting a Palestinian state, sticking to its outlying plan during negotiations or accepting the Palestinian plan. But unless there are 2-states the question of R of R, who controls holy places etc is completely irrelevant. The truth as to why Bibi will not present even an outlying plan of where he wants the final borders to be is because he knows that what he would propose could not be considered by the Palestinians or the international community as offering them a just and viable state. If it was otherwise, Bibi could present an outlying plan. It would still commit him to nothing.
