You never know. It could go brilliantly and everyone want to continue with the same multi-tournament structure. It would reduce the number of inconsequential games to near 0. If you bring in some of the top Japanese and in time, South American teams you could have a 16 team tournament with 4 pools of 4 followed by quarter finals etc.
Both domestic leagues went well this year, allowing unions to finally engage in there own fanbase without this all this rugby conferences taking over the world bullshit.
Separate leagues allows for expansion within there own markets, short term goal would be 6 teams each, but then the separate TT allows for flexibility in scheduling, formats, look at introducing SA & Japanese teams to this part of the league.
