Jeremy: http://www.chessvariants.org/piececlopedia.dir/mimics.html Is the page you are looking for. It covers all types of pieces that move as other pieces, in various ways and circumstances. Though I do think you should keep your page up, because it offer a good jumping off point to your presets. A line of credit about mimics should suffice. Also your variants provides extensions to mimicing pieces not on original page. For example mixing mimes and mimickers.

This concept is basic enough so that I am sure it has been explored by others and has been given other names. The concept is the same as Relay Chess, but applies to opposing pieces. A quick search hasn't produced these exact games for me but if anyone can produce the historical record of these variants, I'd appreciate it (and perhaps I'll withdraw the entry.)
