Firstly, thanks to Fergus for pointing out my error, and sorry to Travis for confusing you and Serge. I have amended the comment accordingly.
	While it is true that 'it is up to the players to
determine the strategies and uses', it is usually up to the inventor which ones cross the River, which ones are Leaping and which Stepping, et cetera - unless, as on a very few of my pages, it offers subvariants depending on whether a certain group of pieces are Leaping or Stepping. Even then, I tend to either recommend a preference or explicitly ask for feedback on which is better. More to follow.
