They aren't really, he has six optionals to fill until Paris Bercy. So he could gain 115 entry points by winning in Beijing.
However, I don't think he will play. He may be on the official entry list, but he doesn't have this tournament on his website schedule.
With regard to Safin, I understood the owners of this tournament have changed and he was renegotiating his contract. Perhaps they just failed to reach an agreement, or he'll get a wildcard when they do eventually.
