Of course it is within the rules. But I am questioning the rules.
The spirit of article 9p was that rounds must be selective.
That's why I proposed to make it more strict with a 50% quota, compatible with what we've seen in most serious competitions.
It seems I'm the only one to think fake competition rounds are anti-fun. So be it, forget my proposal.
What does article 9p achieve? Nothing. It's just awkward.
Round 1: 1003 competitors.
Round 2: 1002 competitors.
Round 3: 1001 competitors.
Final round: 1000 competitors.
This is not selection. So, let's be logical and remove 9p.
