To me this makes no sense. They discussed taking extra points away because they were deemed insignificant and automatic. With this new rule, you have a much greater chance of having one of the most insignificant positions on the field deciding the game. If you make it a 42 yarder, you will easily have some games where 2 teams score the same number of TD's and FG's and one of them misses an extra point kick, thus having the extra point decide games.
I'm not happy about having more games decided by one of the only positions on the field that players are deemed so insignificant that they hardly ever even get drafted.

Make them line up and go for 2 every time.
