Does Australia need the series against West Indies

Shane Warne commented that the Two-tier system is crucial to save test matches - after the first test between Australia and West Indies at Brisbane.
I love Test cricket, but I think it is has got to the stage where there are some things that need to be addressed.
I reckon we need a two-tier system for Test cricket with a grand final for the top two sides in a neutral venue in a one-off Test.
So how is the top five decided? The ICC rankings would get credibility as the system that determines which tier each country goes to.
The other advantage of a two-tier system is Test captains will need to play to win, to protect their spot in the top tier, which will surely result in more entertaining cricket.

This is something very similar to what was mentioned on this blog not so long ago. I couldn't agree more.
