I'm going with B-1D/10 @ B-1.
I will agree with my Canadian crewmate. (Except that the OP was a kick so the result is tackled in the EZ would not be B-1D/10 @ B-20, it would be 1 point and B-1D/10 @ B-35.)

The ball is dead at the point when the player touches knee to ground. The exception is for players driven back. So yes, the tackling team could gain an advantage by knocking the ball carrier forward and out of the EZ. This would be true for a caught punt, intercepted pass or recovered fumble.
