Default US Chess Championship

According to TWiC :
http://www.chesscenter.com/twic/twic.html#news349

The U.S. Chess Championship returns to San Diego from February 22nd - March
5th 2006 and will be held at its new permanent home at NTC Promenade.

The tournament will feature a 64-player field, composed of 19 seeded players
(as determined by the October 2005 U.S.C.F Rating List), 43 tournament
qualifiers (two of which being online) and 2 wild cards selected by the
AF4C. The seeded players include the defending U.S. Champion, Hikaru
Nakamura; Women's Champion, Rusudan Goletiani; the 2004 Chess Café.com Grand
Prix winner, Aleks Wojtkiewicz; the 2005 U.S. Junior Champion; the 2005 U.S.
Senior Champion; 8 top-rated Overall players, and 6 top-rated female players
from the rating list. A new, innovative qualifying process will see one spot
decided by the player who - while not qualifying directly- accumulates the
highest score from playing in as many (or all!) of the qualifying
tournaments. After each tournament, the latest placing for this Qualifier
Grand Prix will be posted on the dedicated U.S. Championship website.

Yes, you forgot the winners of the U1200 elementary championship plus the US
Blind champ, Italo-American senior champion, and the winner of the NJ Open
prize for most losses in the booster section by a girl.

One of the wild cards will be a hooded mystery man, about 6'2",
somewhat overweight. Speculation in the press will run rampant.
Publicity galore. Chess will rise again.

Yeah: too many people qualify.

Whatever happened to using the top eleven rated players plus the US Junior
Champion?

Requiring excellence is unfair.
