A cynic might say that it is the WTCC being canned and International TCR being given FIA status. although I guess that depends on who ends up running the show.
There's a good reason why TouringCars.Net haven't referred to it as a merger - our journalist Damian Meaden is in the paddock and the way things are being described is more of a realignment.

Eurosport get to keep acting as promoter for a global touring car series, WSC let their IP be used under licence and a watchful eye, with the regional series protected, and the FIA get to keep the top of the touring car pyramid intact, in a way.

These things are still being finalised and no one will make an official comment at present.
