I think I agree; I use the DC tables to set a fixed DC according to the theoretical level of the object (for instance, the owner of the house you are breaking into in lower paragon can afford level 13 locks).

Now, you can't get rid of the half level bonus because checks are sometimes made against NADs. So my notional fix is that the DC to kick down the DC 10 door should be read as "DC 10 + half level".
