I don't disagree. My point was that if there are going to be 48 teams, there has to be a better alternative to three-team groups.Eight groups of six teams, would entail each team playing five group games. The eventual finalists would play 10 games, so the tournament would last at least another two weeks longer.
I think the format works perfectly as it is.
