I think that is the only solution.
Just looking at the last four years under your scenario ..
Minnesota would not have made the playoffs in 2003 despite winning the Central
Atlanta would have not made the playoffs in 2001 despite win the East.
Other than that, the top 4 from each league always seem to go.
There is the rare exceptions of course, but not enough to overhaul the entire system.
