One more  thing though: 
If the inventor had concentrated only on point 1 - the throne square - we might have something.

I think this variant would work discarding points 2 + 3 (make 3 move repetition a draw, stalemate a draw just as in standard chess) .

It is illegal to move to throne square if you put yourself in check. 

It could be interesting because sometimes even a bare king vs king and rook may win! 

Too bad, this idea was sunk by the *need* to correct an imaginary 'flaw' in chess.
