Divisional pairings across conferences. (MOD: Playing Matrix)

Does that mean home-and-away games against every team in the league, every season? That's my baseline requirement for making a change.
We could keep div/conf as currently implemented, play 29*2=58 against the entire league, rest is for divisional rivals, every division sends three teams to the playoffs (18 teams, then), division winner gets a bye, first round is best of 3 or 5 between #2 and #3 in the division, then either reseed or have #1 play winner of first round and then reseed.
In this scenario, conferences can be eliminated completely.
