It is intriguing to note the occassional power difference between the maharajah and the sepoys when applying it to chess variants.  For instance, Jupiter-applied M&S produces a terrible beast while Shogi produces a piece that some may think is not itself powerful enough for its board.

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.
