If it was easy, it would be done already. The league would've figured out something better in 1998 if it was easy. It's certainly not rocket science, but it's also not simple.
Columbus wasn't in the league in 1998. Atlanta came in 99, and the Southeast only had 4 teams so it was an easy addition. Minnesota and Columbus entered the league in 2000. The Central had 4 teams as did the Northwest, so it just made sense to move them into their divisions.
