Thanks for good comments.
Graeme Neatham, thanks, i was thinking of both these boards. First is interesting, here lance will not be bound to one of extreme files if moves within it. Second is also interesting, but piece movent here will be assymmetrical, but it don't make it worse. Shogi pawns will not be able to change file, but it don't have clear sidewas moves.
And why boards on your diagrams are colored in this way (i was not thinking about board coloring as my bishops are unbound here)?
