2012 Europe-Africa Zone I - How does it work?

...with all the BYES.

I don't know if I understand the table:

So five of the 11 nations progress automatically to Round 2, and three win through to there, and the winners progress to WG play-offs. That side of the equation seems clear enough.

Meanwhile, the losers of GB-Slovakia, Finland-Netherlands and Denmark-Slovenia progress to the R1 play-off. But there are no teams waiting to play them there.

So what happens next? Are they assumed to lose to BYE, and go into the R2 play-off? Then what? The bottom half could be played between the two first round losers, but does the loser of Slovakia-GB automatically get relegated from the top half?
