As for when he warms up, he should be able to warm up as an inning deteriorates. And the number of "save situations" will be about the same; you'll just be looking for them in the seventh.
So let's work with real world examples to see if it makes sense. We start the 7th up 4-2, is the closer in, warming up, or neither? I'll guess neither for now. 1st guy gets out... still nothing? 2nd guy walks, is he warming up? 3rd guy doubles, 2nd and 3rd, now is he up? Surely, he's not warm right? next guy grounds out scoring 1, 4-3, man on 3rd. Is he warm now? Does he come in?
What are the other guys doing? Are they warming up or is it just current pitcher or closer?
Honestly, it sounds like chaos to me and with very little expected advantage.
