Personally I think there should definitely be more intercontinental play-offs. You don't need so many sides from Africa etc. to get the whole 'world' element across to the competition. Set a reasonable number of teams to go through from each continent and let the rest play off. You want the best teams playing.
What have Asian teams done? South Korea making the semis in 2002 thanks to some very friendly (read: bent as ****) refereeing decisions & that's it.
