I doubt there is much motivation for the AL teams to agree with that change, but perhaps that's what the NL adopts as a compromise, to get the rules closer, but keeping distinct rules. It would leave most of the "strategy" still there, until the NL just adopts full DH.
With the extra 26th man, the 3 batter RP rule, and a DH, I wonder how roster composition will begin to change. Seems like a lot more opportunity for really obscure and specialize players like pinch runners.
