so if you are eliminated, you are not really eliminated, you get a second and even a third chance..... (see the draw of yesterday)
why do Nepal, Mongolia, Macau and Brunei  are not allowed to enter ? Now those poor teams have four years without continental competition..... it seems not fair...

A new AFC international competition, to replace the AFC Challenge Cup, has been proposed to take place in November 2016 and September 2020 for the continent’s lowest-ranked teams who have little opportunity to organise international friendly matches.

Nepal, Brunei Darussalam, Macau, Mongolia, Pakistan and Sri Lanka, as well as the two teams eliminated after the AFC Asian Cup UAE 2019 qualifiers play-off, will form the participating teams for the 2016 competition.

The 14-day tournament will be played between the eight teams at a centralised venue, providing not only a minimum of three matches, but also including coaching, refereeing, technical and event management education courses.

The problems I see with this - Northern Mariana Islands cannot take part. Also, THREE teams will be eliminated from Asian Cup qualifying, not two, so that will leave 9 teams, not 8.

Let's call it the AFC Even More Challenge Cup.
After a couple more iterations it will just be Brunei vs Macao in a straight fight to out-pathetic each other.

If they are re-instated to FIFA in time.  If not, they will either forfeit all their matches 3-0, or FIFA/AFC might bring in the next best team who did not qualify to take their place.  It's anyone's guess until a definitive statement is made by AFC/FIFA.

Macau are replacing Kuwait.

Nepal are replacing Guam (withdrew due to financial difficulties).
