I know it's not the same - 3 automatically promoted, and a division of 24 rather than 22, but I suppose it depends on the quality of teams. It seems more appropriate for the North than the South, because the division is as strong as it is.
The real issue is, there should be 3 up & 3 down between the Conference and the League, and anything more than 2 up from the North/South means relegating six from the National.
It feels a bit like they're tinkering for tinkering's sake, but if it makes our task easier, we should take it. Worth noting it could also count against us - finish second, get beat off a team in seventh; but that's the lottery we go for in the playoffs.
