If the 2017 Championships Committee find, at close of entries for the 2017 event, that the Championships are over subscribed then those competitors with the lowest qualifying place achieved may be put on a waiting list. Your Qualifying place may be improved. E.g. if a competitor qualifies with a 7th place and is then placed 4th in a later competition the 4th place will count.
