Whether Nat1 should be as large or be national is one thing (or two things :) ), but the Championship reduced to 12 because the bottoms teams were getting smashed, IIRC.
I think the bottom teams of the Champs still get smashed by the big teams.  Some team in Champs are still pro.
I think there could be a model where teams in the Championship need to be fully pro.  It may need to drop to 6 or 8 teams initially, but, then allow teams to come up as they become Pro and if they have a sustainable business model.  When it gets to 14 or more teams, then allow the Premiership to expand as well.

Yeah but its difficult to make much of a "League" competition initially out of just 6 teams methinks?

Yes, a league with 6 teams is a little dull.
Sri Lanka have 8 teams in their top level - they maintain a high level of popularity with just 8 teams.
Abu Dhabi Harlequins play in the Gulf Top 6. 
So, it is possible.  It would also hopefully expand as more clubs became fully pro.
