Its in everyones best interest to increase revenues. So at some point there will be a play in round.
The easiest way to do it is to say the two conferences with eight teams have a one game play in between 4th and 5th place. its not exactly even I'm terms of percentage chance of making the playoffs, but its close enough. Yes it adds an extra game for those two conferences, but the revenue generation will be worth it. And eventually, when they get to 32 teams all conferences will have that set up.
You could also argue that its a good trade off because the "western" conferences have tougher travel for the playoffs.
