2020 WC Rules, Format, and Schedule

Hello.
 
I am announcing my interest in running the 2020 WC.  I would like to do a bracketed double elimination format.  This is a fairly straightforward extension to the bracketed (single) elimination format, such as you see in tennis and NCAA basketball, with an additional loser's bracket for players with 1 loss.
 
I'd like to keep things as simple as possible besides that, but I think I can support rescheduling.  Entry fee format could be similar to last year's, and I can sponsor some entries.
 
Also, there will be scenarios where players only need to play 1 game over 2 weeks, and I would like to allow those games to be played in either week.  My current inclination would be to permit either player to postpone the game to the second week, with sufficient advance notice.  All other changes would require agreement from both players.  So, if the players were A and B, then I would create a scheduled game for A vs. B in the first week, but, say, A could request to move it to the second week.  If A does not show up for the game without doing so, then it would be up to B whether to win by forfeit or allow the game to be played in the second week.
 
Let me know if you have any suggestions, and thanks.

I would like to run the WC as a triple elimination similar to 2016, possibly with minor changes to forfeit handling. I contacted Omar a while ago but have been lazy about doing anything else.

I'd just like to add that, even setting complexity aside, I would prefer a bracketed double elimination to the floating triple elimination.  We used to have quite a lot of floating-style multi-elimination tournaments on ICC (although without any consideration for preventing rematches), and I would not describe those as fair (e.g., in terms of determining second place).
 
That said, my main priority is not to have single elimination again.  Also, I wouldn't expect to play as TD.
