This is why such recalculations don´t mean much. Had quality points been there this year, then rankings and draws would have been completely different. It´s impossible to tell, how the year end rankings would have been looked like, as it´s impossible to retroactively redo the draws and replay matches that were never played. If WTA ever should bring quality points back, then for sure they would not recalculate the past results.
