Ah, no, any criteria that accepts more than 50% of applicants is by definition anything but elite. Allowing 4 teams to qualify - that would be elite.
Since the format already lets in tons of mediocre teams, I see no compelling reason not to let in ALL teams. 16 is already an absurd number, so let's just skip "20" and go straight to a "everybody qualifies" format.
Personally, I would rather see the number cut down to 8.
