Hopefully one has still the right to have a different opinion. It is the first time I hear that there is a minimum of games required. Counter-examples are many. In fact most of fairy pieces have been named by problemists on their very first use.

I don't think either that naming 3 pieces is an attempt to name the infinite number of possible chess variant pieces. Your comparison is an exaggeration.

I do think they are worth of special attention, again is my opinion. I respect yours, respect mine.
