In my experience, which I have to admit is limited to 
the computer screen (!), you have two choices in 
designing 2-3 element interlaced yagi's for 10/15 

1) Put the 15 meter driven and reflector entirely 
behind the 10 meter antenna.

2) Use a cell type driven element with 1 feedpoint 
for both bands (parasitically excite the second 
driven element).

I learned all this when planning to add 2 elements 
for 15 to my homebrew 3 element 10 meter monobander.

Either approach will work fine.  The thing that 
doesn't work fine is interlacing the antennas with 
the 10 and 15 meter portions laying right on top of 
each other - the two antennas interact in very bad
