Nice idea -  consider modification wherein the county which didn't
finish a team (or didn't even enter a team) could qualify for the next
WEC by finishing a team at one of the interim championships (PanAM,
Euorpean, asian, ...). The intent is to deal with those bad-luck events
and allow for (new and re-newed) qualifications at the team level.

If you allow teams to "requalify" at the interim championships, then
this still leads to the chance to only finish half the time (finish at
the interim championships to qualify and then go for broke at the
worlds).  I have no problem with requiring teams to finish at the
interim championships in order to qualify for the world championship,
but they still need to make it so teams that enter but don't finish at
the world championships are required to sit the next world championship
out AND (perhaps) finish teams at both the interim championships while
they are doing so.

The FEI needs to send the message: "If you can't finish a team, you have
no business being there."
