Shogi-style drops are nice way to make Maharajah-like games more balanced. And in Shogi initial position this kind of Maharajah have chance to capture unprotected pawn.
And I think it would be fair rule, so if Shogun will manage to have roughly same power as opponent (perhaps, there is needed some certain system of piece values to count), he will demote do normal King.
