I would recommend combining them into another Man, and using the Bishop Adjustment Rule.

Note the 'and'. If they are combined into another Man, the board will have the Couriers on the same colour if the board is appropriately reduced. You can also use a 'Queen Adjustment Rule' in your standard variant. Also, the Knight and the Bishop, and perhaps the Man, are much weaker than the Courier on this board. Garry Kasparov has said this to even be true in many cases in FIDE Chess.
