English players are at loggerheads with Premiership Rugby's proposals for an 11-month domestic season to run after the 2019 World Cup, with murmurings of strike continuing over welfare and rest periods.
The dual-code worldwide was in the England team that lost to New Zealand in the semi-finals four years ago and was captain of the side that, despite having home advantage, failed to reach the final of the 2016 Four Nations Series.
"The important factor will be data and information in determining how long the off-season should be", said Melville, the RFU's professional rugby director.
However, the South Sydney forward says preparations are going well and he believes Wayne Bennett's men are well equipped to go one better than Steve McNamara's class of 2013.
There will be some coverage on BBC television, the Red Button and BBC Radio 5 live including all England matches.
"It's been together for 18 months and the similar 17, maybe 19 players have been used".
"There's no point sitting in a room and talking about what the off-season should be until we've got the data", Melville said.

Utah visits the Los Angeles Clippers on Tuesday, and Ingles is listed as probable because of stomach distress. He is shooting 63 per cent from the floor, tops in the league among players with at least seven attempts.
"Let's work out the best thing, let's work that out, because actually that determines when you start and when you finish". We've had a great week and a half over in Perth and now we're in Melbourne. The boys are relaxed. We've prepared really well.
"I don't know the specifics and the background completely to the FA situation, but from the way we look at it from our perspective is it's about being transparent, it's about being open, clear, making good quality decisions and keep checking and challenging ourselves to make sure that we keep up to those high standards that we set, and I think if we carry on our lives like that, we should find ourselves always on the right side of a tricky position".
"It will be a physical game against Australia and we are more than ready".
Plus there will be a Quarter-Final each in Christchurch and Wellington as well as a Semi-Final in Auckland.
"It's a celebration of our game and I think everyone who gets involved with this tournament and comes out and sees all the matches is going to be for a treat".
"I'm very proud of my performance for England and what I contributed to the team. He's trying to sell his book".
