Jose, your proposal puts added restrictions on the order in which pieces may be placed, while mine and George's just speed up the setup without restricting the order in which pieces may be placed. Your proposal also deprives the setup phase of some of its strategic and tactical possibilities, which was part of the appeal of the original game.
