Pretty much. Although it would be very FA of the FA to go through with it & cut adrift non league football.

If they did go through with that, I'd like to see the FA Trophy & Vase rearranged for one season to go some way to make amends for clubs club runs... maybe something like:

FA Trophy - remove step 1 clubs, remove all step 2 clubs that are entered in to the FA Cup, add step 5 clubs (or a number of step 5 clubs) to increase the field.

FA Vase - remove step 5 clubs (or just the step 5 clubs in the FA Trophy if they aren't all there), maybe open the doors for anyone lower than the current basement with access to an enclosed floodlight pitch to being the numbers back up.

Increase the prize money for both with an even split of all the prize money the FA save by not having to pay for the previous 5 rounds of preliminary & qualifying rounds of the FA Cup.

This is of course all wishful thinking based on my own utopian ideas, the reality will probably be a fair bit more bleak for grassroots football.
