I'll maybe hazard some analysis another day, but I think we can draw a line above BikeExchange, who have had a crap year, and say anyone below that line is in the mix to varying degrees.
Sounds reasonable.
There is a big gap between #nexthash and #total #unox #bbhotels, though. And the gap to the top-18 is even bigger - I'd say it's virtually insurmountable. To make up the difference to #arkea, #total or #unox would have to score about twice as much as in the last two years combined, in one season.

Therefore I'd say that #arkea #cofidis are in with a real shout at a WT licence while #bikeexchange #movistar #israel #iwg have to watch their backs and #lotto have to really step up their game if they want to keep their licence.
What will be crucial is whether or not #alpecin will apply for a WT licence or not.
