The Chess Variants Page applet gives the Bishop its regular move, which makes it quite a powerful piece in the opening game. Maybe too powerful, giving White too much advantage? Be interesting to see how this variant would play with the restricted (moving as a King) Bishop as per Mr. Bodlaender. I'm thinking 'Dutch' here does not imply any Netherlands national connection--more like 'reversed', as in a 'Dutch auction' where bids decrease rather than going up.
