Please note, the SETS rules have been simplified above, to have a stalemate win as a win. Smothered positions are infrequent in normal chess. I hope people find this rewrite satisfactory. However, if no version of SETS (or a scoring system like SETS) is ever going to get used, then this is a bit of academia where you score points for your view of the world being correct, but nothing is actually done.
