Actualy, whichever teams won the playoff divisional title for each of the eight divisions could be re-seeded across the divisions: the eight remaining divisional champions would be voted upon by all to determine the 1st-8th seedings for match-ups for the remainder of the playoffs.

On second thought, the more divisions there will be, the more fragmented the discussion and analyses, thus the less clear picture of relative strengths and weaknesses.

Still, a very interesting idea.
