Also, the WT-PCT promotion/relegation at least has been postponed until 2023:

Picking something from that article to comment on:
It says there could be 19 or even 20 WorldTour teams if a ProConti team (or two) that's placed in the top-18 decides to apply while the existing WorldTour teams' three-year licences are still running (e.g. after one year).

What if the same happens the year after that?! There are 20 WT teams already - what if another two PCTs make the top-18 in the second year and also apply for a WT licence? The original 18 WT teams still have one year left on their licence, and the two new teams may also have finished in the top-18, so you can't take theirs away. Will there then be 22 WT teams?!
:slow

This all sounds not terribly well thought out. :S
