Should the medal round have a different format?

The change I would like to see is a change to the group structure.
If they are going to stick with a 12-team format, they should have two Groups of 6, and then each team could play a 5-game round-robin to determine places 1-6 in each group. From there, the top 4 in each pool would move on to the quarterfinals, and play crossover games against the other group (1 vs. 4, 2 vs. 3).
That way you wouldn't get that weird qualification round and subsequent goofy bracket.
It would require quite a few more games, though.
