2) As all new clubs now would affiliate with the county FA, and reinforcing a vague recollection I'd already had, I think the notion of clubs being affiliated directly with the FA is a legacy of a historical situation.

Full member clubs are shareholders of the FA, along with the County FAs and some other stakeholders. I think only clubs that have played at Step 2 or above can become Full Members.

Not sure of the history, but I'd guess it was clubs that formed the FA in the first place, plus it was considered important for senior clubs to continue to be directly represented rather than via their county associations or leagues.
