But how about this: instead of droping only Shogi pieces, there can be used rule that only pieces, wich are captured by Shogi pieces. are to be droped!
It can be reason of promoting Chess pawns to Shogi pieces (mainly to flying chariot, of course)!
In original game there is rule that only Shogi pieces can be droped is probably because if you have Shogi set, this game is playable. But i think that opposite rules, wich i just described are a bit more intersting.

There is one unclear thing: can pawns promote to Shogi pieces? If can, can these Shogi pieces promote further and can pawn promote to dragon pieces in one step?
But it's not important, as most of promotions will still be to queen!

e-elephant
h-horse
c-cannon
s-Xiang-qi pawn
Xiang-qi chariot is technicaly same piece as rook, expect that it can't
castle so on diagram it is 'r'.
River is between 4th and 5th rank. No palace.
