It should be a bit of both, if I express my opinion about it. I want the top-16 best teams, but the travel issue should be minimized. Doing the Top-8 is the next best thing to the top-16. But then if you can match Playoff teams up as much as possible by Divisional groupings, then you can give opportunity in the 1st Round and perhaps also the 2nd Round to geographical rival matchups.
I don't agree with focusing on more than the other; a compromise, a bit of both, is the best option, IMO.
