There may be several reasons why a couple of major conferences are not going to count scheduled games with BYU as meeting an OOC power-conference opponent.
One, that didn't get mentioned, is that the existing power conferences don't want to add anybody else right now to their elite grouping of 65. The more added, particularly an independent with complications, may increase the difficulty of the power 5 enacting certain agendas as well as avoiding making a new acknowledgement where a new domain of strength may lie.

Here are the goals.
Autonomy (almost there)
Settle lawsuits/pay for play/unions (just getting started)
Realign to super conference (PAC+4, SEC+2, B1G+2, ACC+at least 2) and make ND join or risk being cut off while crippling the Big12. Likely the only "expansion" will come from the ACC as they are healthy enough to lose a few members and maintain there status as a power conference as they have suitable power conference level schools ready to replace like UConn, Cincy, and WVU. But this realignment is mainly to limit the access to the new system from schools Baylor, TCU, K State, and ISU rather than give power to UConn/Cincy (who aren't much better but happen to be in better geographical areas that are under served in elite college sports).
Separate from the rest of the non power leagues in major sports (fb, m/w bb, sb/bsb, vb, soccer, and eventually LAX) basically anything that could get TV money (ice hockey likely will never as only the B1G and a few other power schools sponsor and the sports is likely too regional).
Renegotiate all TV deals and post season deals for NFL type money. While this won't included tier 3 (as those channels are owned and split between ESPN/FOX), it could included pooling tier 1 and/tier 2 rights for the power 4.
Profit. We may see the creation of an AAU/CIC type organization evolve around power schools as a way of propping each other up. We could see hockey expand to many schools if it becomes more popular and then included that deal separately once it gets enough traction. Splitting from the NCAA all together may be possible as poaching star athletes from non power schools of any level could eventually be just another part of recruiting, like JUCOs on steroids...did your star QB tear his ACL in spring practices? Well UCF, Fresno, UDel or Hillsdale has a stud QB getting looks from NFL scouts. So call him up and ask him if he wants to play in the power division, he can be your starter in the fall. Imagine how good basketball could be if the stars could transfer into the power league each year?
The drawbacks. You sacrifice the purity/magic of collegiate sports. No more FCS team upsetting a power school, or a Boise State rising from no where to become a household name. The bball tourney will have no more Cinderellas or out of nowhere bracket busters, or crazy things like Dallas Baptist making the College World Series. You get a professional Jr version of the NFL/NBA/MLB, and while some see college sports as such, many of us see it as something more.
