Denmark have improved since then as well, they showed they could cope in a group with Germany, Portugal and Netherlands.

Also. A 40 team World Cup just won't work. Although I do have to question on why you think South America deserves 6.5 spots when there's only 9 teams. That's just wrong.
What about UEFA teams that have gotten worse since then?

South America deserves 6.5 spots because they can produce that many quality teams. Their 8th place team finished 2 points behind Uruguay in a true round robin tournament.
