It is really a very far-fetched assumption that people would beforehand come to the conclusion that the move diagrams must be no good without even trying, no matter whether they are intimately familiar with the Diagram or not.

Before you introduced the feature of placing pieces in other positions than the center, Greg, the very author of this page, noted that the interactive diagram wouldn't be very helpful for showing how the pieces moved differently than they do in Chess. So, far from being a far-fetched assumption, it is one that a qualified person already made.
