Besides, CIF picks up a good portion of the travel costs for playoffs. My sense is a national HS playoff would generate a lot of sponsor interest / network coverage. This might be more feasible economically than you think.
Travel for 8 teams rd 1
4 for rd 2
2 for rd 3
and 2 for the championship assuming a neutral site.
I'll bet the local NFL teams would kick in to sponsor this as well.

Seems like you're headed down the "everyone gets a trophy" road.
4 teams is good, but begs the question...would Sponge Bob rather rule in hell or serve in heaven?
"How stupid is our country?"
The logical endpoint for all this is for the Southern Section to have 396 playoff brackets of one school each. Then everybody gets a ring and everybody's happy. Except the CIF, which gets no playoff revenue.
San Diego Section will have six teams that will win CIF titles in divisions with 8 to 12 teams.
83 total schools= 13 schools per divison
396 total schools= 30 schools per division in 16 team brackets
