I like the college rule; block can be returned for 2 points for the defense.  So leave the spot at the 10, but add that extra incentive for blocking the kick.

The current spot for the PAT is the 2, these rules would move it back 13 yards.

Poll is kind of confusing.

You talking about where the ball is snapped from or where it's kicked from?

Snap +7 yards for the hold, +10 yards for the posts.

Todays XP are about 19 yards, I wouldn't mind seeing it from at least 30 total yards (snapped from the 13)

This and you can return for points

Where the ball is snapped from.  So, an XP would be like a 32 yd FG.

The thing I don't like about these options is that it takes away the element of surprise on a 2pt conversion.  When the ball is snapped at the same spot for the extra point or the 2pt conversion, offenses can line up to kick the extra point but still run a 2pt play.

If you snap from the 15 for the extra point, but snap from the 2 for the 2pt conversion, every time the ball is placed at the 2, defenses will be ready, stacking the middle. 

I would propose doing away with the kick altogether, and making every team go for two.   Or perhaps, snap the ball from the 4 or 5 yard line for both.  The extra point would still be almost a given, and the 2pt conversion would be difficult so teams probably wouldn't try it as often....so not sure if that makes it more entertaining or not.

I feel like the DH argument shouldn't be National vs American league.  It's more like America vs Al Quaeda.

Al Quaeda would be for the DH I assume cuz thats how they are? I'm curious about the Al Quada and Isis inter league games though.

*the defense should be allowed to take it back for points.

Yes, it is a well-known fact that all terrorists support the DH.
