The USSSA by laws say that for the top 10% to be bumped the world tournament has to have at least 25 teams in it. So no 'A' teams have been bumped in recent years.
You are saying the top 3 'A' teams at 'A' Worlds are being bumped but they are not and have not in the last 10+ years. There were a few years where the winner was bumped to AA.
Empire was B. There were 80+ teams in the B so yes the top 10% of B is bumped to A every year per the by laws. Same with C, D, E
