You seem to be under the assumption that this game is won by checkmate. It is not. The object is to possess all three kings, and even if you lose a king, you still have the chance to get it back. So your suggestion would not really fix anything. Also, you have to consider that the "checked" player's other opponent may have incentive to not let the "checking" player get the king, and it would be a bad move to expose another player's king to capture by your other opponent. Besides no need for this rule change, it would make the game harder to program, and it would not make sense if a move left multiple kings in "check". I have put "check" in quotation marks, because there is no check in this game.
