Should the BCS (and Big East) Save the Western Athletic Conference?

Last year, the leadership of NCAA Division I rewrote their rules, eliminating the old continuity of membership rules and making Football Bowl Subdivision (FBS) membership available only by invitation from an existing FBS conference.

It was thought at the time that as long as the leadership of the Western Athletic Conference member schools acted with a modicum of common sense, these rules effectively guaranteed the WAC's survival as an FBS conference.

Today, it looks like Conference USA and the Mountain West Conference may rip the WAC apart as they rebuild in preparation for a future merger.

I think based on the value the WAC provides, the power conferences of the BCS (and the Big East) may want to step in and put a stop to the destruction of the WAC.
