Why add the CKxCK rule?

Description of pawn / pincer pawn seems redundant. We are told that it moves one forward. We are told that it makes the double initial pawn move if it hasn't moved. Then we are told that it also moves like a rook. Which means regardless of whether it has moved or it hasn't moved, it can make any number of moves forward or to the side. A more consistent and reconciling approach might be for it to be allowed to move as a rook only when it can act as a pincer.

And then in addition to Stupid, Pure Stupid and Total Stupid, there is PlaneStupid. Plane Stupid would, in addition to choice between orthodox and Ultima pieces, set up correspondence with Ralph Betza's Nutty Knights, so that all (but two) pieces can also jump, like a Knight, or Plane loosely. PlaneStupid also is actually a new environmental organization that stopped Prince Charles from jetting an entourage last month to New York for environmental award, an oxymoron.

I would probably prefer to play 'Pure Stupid' rather than 'Total Stupid'. How does a pawn promote? I would probably allow it to promote to a Pincer-Queen, Pincer-Knight, Pincer-Rook, or a Pincer-Bishop (to allow the Ultima moves to work as they did before). But if that isn't how it is supposed to work then please indicate it.
