While I fundamentally agree, and I said so back when this happened with
Peru, I disagree in this one case. Why? (1) Because it's Nationals,
and (2) because the cap was announced so late in the game. Had the cap
been announced when the entry form showed up, I'd probably have
something different to say.
That said, I'll be surprised if we're over 1100.
