Changes in practice format?

The discussion in Brazil is about practice and qualifying for next year with the FIA apparently suggesting to the teams that only the four bottom teams in the World Championship be allowed to run a third car on Fridays. this is not going down well with the middle order teams which have enjoyed the advantage up to now. The current rules allow all but the top four teams to run third cars. The change is unlikely to happen as the teams would need to agree to the change and show no signs of doing so.
