It would be great if commissioners had more control over playoff formats. I want each playoff round to be two weeks long.
I think that one week playoffs are too volatile and leave too much up to chance. Mostly because players have different numbers of games and a team should not win because they had more games played in the final week. I know that championships can be made to be two weeks long, but I think that all playoff rounds should be able to be made two weeks as well.

I moved my Yahoo league to ESPN for the sole reason that ESPN allows you to customize the playoffs to whatever size you want.
There absolutely needs to be the ability to create a totally customized playoff format. Our league went to 14 teams this year and it created several issues with playoffs, due to the limited options that yahoo allows. It shouldn't be very hard to allow commissioners total control for playoff brackets, allowing byes where an odd number of teams enter or continue in the playoffs. Other sites have these options and yahoo needs to keep up. I know we're not the only ones who are a bit salty about this. We want to come back next year, but you need to pick up your game and fix it Yahoo!!!
