These two are very similar, and to the "losers pool" as well.

Since some of these rounds are a kind of "bonus" for teams that didn't do well enough to break, and since that bonus is meant to increase education, it might be worthwhile for these rounds to try and match teams from different regions, or at least teams who haven't seen other teams from each other's schools in a prior prelim.
