I fear that we are merely shifting the argument about which 3rd ranked team got left out to which 5th ranked team got left out.

There will be some of that, but their argument will be much weaker. People will undoubtedly believe they have a claim to the top 4, but few will think they should be #1.

I think saying we're merely shifting the argument understates it. What this does is drop the chance for a shared national title to 0.000% and that wasn't true before.
