Here's an unorthodox (and heretical) suggestion: If in fact, the FIDEs are more powerful, when fending off against the Shatranjian Shooters, maybe they are the ones that should have the knights replaced with moos or maybe wazir / lame dabbabas, to make them more consistent. We'll make our own determinations, perhaps, after we have played a good number of games with them (various permutations)...
