Dom -- True, checkmate of the Amazon (General) is nearly impossible, but then again, you could not exchange the General or put it in a position where it could be captured; so, that does limit its power. On the other hand, attacking a position defended by the General with another General would not be feasible. (By the way, by convention authors do not rate their own pages -- no big deal -- I edited your comment to 'None'.)
