I personally hate the idea, but I did read something that I did like somewhere else.
Only kickoffs to start halves - this reduces the amount of kickoffs and improves safety, etc., etc, but still features the sometimes exciting play occasionally. Otherwise, the recieving team just starts at the 20 (which they already essentially do 60-70% of the time.) But the major thing is that each team would be allowed one onside kick attempt per game. The coach could therefore elect to use that near the end of the game.
Personally I much prefer the idea of one given onside kick to the proposed 4th and 15 attempt idea.
