Being in Massachusetts, we use NCAA rules:

"Exception: the ball remains alive when an offensive player has simulated a kick or is in position to kick the ball held for a place kick by a teammate. the ball may be kicked passed or advanced by rule."

I can't comment on the Fed exception, but I don't see an NCAA problem with the original post's scenario.

Leaving it on the ground for the kicker to scoop up is OK I believe. the only possible infraction might be Planned Loose Ball play. but that applies only to "the vicinity of the snapper." and with the holder being seven yards behind the snapper, Planned Loose Ball wouldn't apply in my opinion.
