This exact setup was invented in 2004 by David Paulowich and myself, (mostly David.)  No page was posted about it, but it has been in ChessV for years, under the name 'Capablanca Chess, Paulowich Variant.'  The only difference is that pawns may only promote to Queen, Chancellor, or Archbishop.

It is always interesting to me the way good ideas tend to be reinvented independantly.  This is a very good arrangement of pieces.
