Really need separate polls so that the percentages are meaningful

Eh, it's easy enough to calculate on a separate basis.

The only categories that really matter, of course, are the first 6 since they're the only ones that actually get to vote. But the other categories are interesting too.

SOA-meh.

If it gets us back to actual exams designed for working actuaries, vs online modules and university courses, I'll be in favor.

Your statement is too general and falls under the category of be careful what you wish for.

And just because the exams might change to be what you would want for an SOA working actuary, there's no guarantee they will be what a CAS working actuary might need.
