Regarding the [Repetition] section in the game rules

SILLY QUESTION: Does anyone care who has a forced win in the endgame with WHITE K(d4) and R(e5), BLACK K(g7) and R(f6)? Promotion of a King to Emperor might give a winning advantage here, but this will not happen until your opponent stops blocking the advance of your King with his Rook. So the game could drag on for more than 1000 moves, with the no-repetition rule deciding victory.

INTERESTING QUESTION: Is there a simple way to force a win with Emperor and Bishop against Emperor and Knight? It would seem that the Bishop's greater range (plus its ability to triangulate) could lead to a no-repetition rule victory.
