could be. last year, israel had two sites nominated, but only the bahai'i sites got listed. the other one, the triple arch gate, is incidentally up for nomination again this year.
but in the case of israel, the reason why it had two then was the fact that the bahai'i one was deferred in the preceding year, hence, the nominated was carried over to the next session. in this case, one nomination was submitted as a mixed site and the other one a cultural site, but apparently, the mixed site did not meet iucn's approval. ironically, i personally considered mount song to have a better chance of being inscribed than mount wutai. mount song has the sacred mountain element, archaeological sites, shaolin monastery and philosophy and forest of steles. then again, given such a number of elements to work with, there are too many outstanding universal value themes which can be presented for mount song. hence, maybe there was a problem when it comes to organizing the information in the documents (e.g. lack of focus, too many elements, information overkill, etc.).
