Whether you call them "conferences" or "divisions" doesn't matter. There need to be 4 basic building blocks that teams are put in.

The problem is that if the 4 blocks are called "conferences", then you don't mix the playoff seeding and you have a fundamentally unfair system since they can't be numerically balanced.

If you call them divisions though, and still keep the overarching framework of conferences then you solve that problem easily.

Creating a bad system with the intent of fixing it later doesn't seem like a good idea. A lot of things can happen, or not happen. Who ever thought the Jets would still be in the Southeast now? They can make changes that better suit a 32 team league if and when that happens. (Such as division-only playoffs)
