Bringing the faceoff in the zone could save at least 15 seconds of a team trying to get back in. The Rangers spend like 1:15 trying to get in. This could give more of a disadvantage to a team who takes a stupid penalty, especially major penalties like headshots.
How much time does a team spend outside of the o-zone on a major PP?
They can think twice about it all they want. Teams/players do not intentionally take penalties so "thinking" about it isn't going to change anything.
I agree that it does give another advantage to the team on the PP as they will already be in the others teams zone but I think it is bush league and making a change in this vein is more gimmick then base foundation. That is why it hasn't been discussed per the question you posed in the OP.
