"Across the board, the reshuffle will see the three current Step Three divisions of 24 clubs increase to four divisions of 22 clubs while the six divisions at Step Four currently run by the Northern Premier League, Southern League and Isthmian League will rise from 136 clubs playing in six divisions to seven 20 club divisions.

To achieve its aim, The FA also confirmed that only the bottom clubs in the current Step Three divisions will be relegated at the end of season 2017-2018. In addition, only the clubs finishing last in the six divisions currently operating at Step Four will be relegated next season with 26 clubs coming up from
Step Five.
The new Step Three division will be managed and controlled by the Southern League.
The Isthmian Football League was chosen last Thursday to manage and control the new Step Four division."

I think that its safe to infer that with 4 Step3 and 7 Step4 divisions it can only be a matter of time before Step4 is again increased, to 8 divisions.
However is there anything else we can regard as fact?
