I agree that introducing a queen or an alfil/dabbabah would destroy the mood of the game; admit it was a suggestion quite superficial.

Sorry for the distorted diagram; anyway by clicking on the EDIT button it can be seen rightly.

Essentially, what I really like to say is why not to introduce reversed or rotational symmetry in the setup? For example thus:

Do you see any flaw in this setup? Is there any other reason why not to accept it?

I like your ideas but it's hard to me to admit the lack of symmetry in games [like Sky] whose starting setups are not randomized; in these last my likings are inverted: I prefer asymmetric setups regarding one another side.
