[Before going on to 'noncolourboundedness' etc.] 'Triangulate' is just defined as three moves returning to the same square as in the ordinary OrthoChess term itself we overlook. It means no more or less for exotic CV pieces. In '91.5 Trillion..' article, in a different concept using the name, we have a new Mutator defined in Rule Number 13 called 'Triangular Transference': 'Three same-side pieces that form a right triangle positionally, even if 2 or more are adjacent, mutually transfer the moving power of those 2 pieces that define the hypoten(e)use'. For another clarification, CGilman's latest Comment's last sentence assumes everyone well understands there are four(4) Dabbaba bindings in squares. To the question of 'significance', on Sibahi's and Glinski's hexagonals, one already stated is for the problem theme of Tours reaching every hex. The verb 'to matter' can have as wide or narrow scope as you want: bindings, or alternations among them, *matter* foremost for just their mathematical reality one supposes. In a case, maybe it *matters* to move in three not to same square (1,1), as in triangulating, but instead (1,2) or (2,1)-- using our notation for squares as blocks not steps: thus(1,2) is Wazir step one-path, or leap.
