A further development of this would be a 10x10 version of my Ecumenical Chess, achieved by putting a Canvasser (Rook+Camel) behind the Queen's Bishop, a Gnu (Knight+Camel) behind the Queen's Knight, and Caliphs (Bishop+Camel, two because colourbound) behind the King's Bishop and Knight.

I think idea of the central symmetry is a fresh idea

It is okey setup!

In view of principle of 'exception of two identical pieces in one number from three squares' is possible to offer 2 more variants of initial position in Symchess.(In view of preservation of the order R,N,B,Q,K,B,N,R).

o o o o o o o o o o-3rd row,

U R N B Q K B N R U-2nd row,

A(d1)..C(g1)-1st row (I variant)

o o o o o o o o o o-3rd row,

R N U B Q K B U N R-2nd row,

A(c1)... C(h1)-1st row (II variant)

First of them can be rejected from aesthetic reasons (normal castling impossible). The second has lack. Total of protection of pawns - it is minimal(2x4+2x3+6x1=20). Opening setup from Symchess and Sam Trenholmes` variant for Symchess are the optimal because, the total sum of protection of pawns is maximal(=22) and also all pawns are protected.
