The point about castling is well taken. We should probably adopt the castling rule from Courier-Spiel. Swapping the starting positions of the knight and archbishop would bring the knights to their usual distance from the king and queen. It would not solve what I see as another problem, that the bishops face one another along the diagonals, and if the d-file and i-file pawns are advanced, one bishop can take another on its home square.
