One guestion: How does moving grinding out from fortreses make it easier?
Fortresses are easier to move around than rest of the nether.
I think that beacon is very underpovered and nether star needs some other use.
The vast majority of minecraft players don't grind, and the expanded terrain and space in which to search means they will spawn more often, making it quicker, if not easier. Fortresses are easier to move around (not that much), but the expanded terrain you can search in means you'll find them quicker. Additionally, in fortresses a bunch of mobs are competing for spawning attention - cubes, skeletons, pigmen, and blazes, while there are much less out in the real nether.
If you think the beacon is underpowered, that's a different topic. But if it is, you certainly shouldn't mind making it slightly easier to get.
