The players absolutely do not want to go down that road.
The NHL has no comparable, if we're realistic. Furthermore, why would an arbiter exclude MLB?
This is really OT though. These issues are about systems and player rights. You don't use binding arbitration to settle something this complex. Arbitration is only useful if there are related & clear precedents, plus typically a choice of two options (or what's in between).
