The frequency of the IC should ultimately be decided by the players themselves.It's opportunity versus cost .I can see a growing importance of  European and Oceania Cups ,more important for the promotion of the member countries .than the IC .So there is logic from those wanting to increase the spacing of the IC and logic from those wanting some "qualification" for the IC .But in some ways the IC is more important to the 2nd division and newcomers .It validates ,rewards and encourages those countries that they are truly part of Australian football world .The French team has been used as an example .Well IMO they (and we)have benefited greatly from them being here more than an appearance in a Euro event .Hopefully that will change and they will become more competitive in European competition .it's interesting that the Germans have not as yet seen the value in the IC .
