0/3 Ambiguity
If there are hands with a singleton that wouldn't accept the invitation, then opener declines the invitation by showing his shortage, then passing responder's 3 bid. (But personally I don't think there is a hand with a singleton where I'd want to decline the invitation ...

The location and the venue. Philly is an interesting city which is easy to get around. The venue was in the centre of the city, with good public transport, and plenty of hotels, eateries and shops within walking distance. Orlando and the current venue have none of these advantages.
The WBF wouldn't "reject" them. They would choose not to invite them. They don't have to provide an explanation. Normally I would dislike such a lack of transparency and the potential for abuse of power, but it does have some advantages.
Why is it surprising to not ask about the double?
How about saying no to offensive and untrue generalisations?
All WBF championship events, including the main teams and pairs events on Orlando, are invitation-only. From the WBF eligibility code: "the participation and accreditation to any WBF Championship has to be intended by strict personal invitation." I'm not sure if the same applies to the side-games.
