The way they did it there was utterly pointless as well. Why set up a ruck, 0m forwards and box kick to touch?
I accept that he probably doesn't trust his own kicking, but just pass to the FH and let them punt it further.

As for the trial itself, I get what they want to do, but I don't consider the problem they're addressing to be a problem.

Seems pointless to me.

Safer to go with "a return kick from kick off from inside 22 is the (receiving) kickers throw" (i.e. Not the team that kicked off)

Would mean the kick off is, or should be, always aimed short of 22.
