That is the same thing described differently. However worded you get 7 doing nothing but scoring the TD or you can attempt a conversion akin to the 2 pt now and get either 6 or 8 depending on the result. Call it 0 or 2 v. -1 or +1 it is the same 2 pt swing.
I don't care one way or another if they make this change. If it was something bigger which created more strategy then that could be cool.
For instance using the suggestion earlier, team is down by 11 with limited time. If they get a quick TD do they go for 2 leaving a FG to tie or back it up so a FG wins but a miss means they'll need another TD to win.
