OTOH, the tags for groupings of pieces feels like a kludge that offers very little value if the other approach is available...

This depends on what kind of search utility we can provide (elegantly), and how much convenience we think this class of games deserves. The current definition of the tag would need a search like "includes at least one of marshall/archbishop/amazon and no pieces outside of FIDE+those".

I think in part this class deserves a quickly found list because it's so common to want to include the compounds; it may help new developers understand the prior art in this area.

Quick Markdown Guide

By default, new comments may be entered as Markdown, simple markup syntax designed to be readable and not look like markup. Comments stored as Markdown will be converted to HTML by Parsedown before displaying them. This follows the Github Flavored Markdown Spec with support for Markdown Extra. For a good overview of Markdown in general, check out the Markdown Guide. Here is a quick comparison of some commonly used Markdown with the rendered result:
