My goodness, given that these presets do not enforce rules, you could play an Ajax version of anything! An Ajax game of the Carrera/Bird/Capablanca family would have some really powerful pieces. Ajax Courier, Ajax Timur's, Ajax Duke of Rutland, I'm an Ajax Wazir... you've hit upon something remarkable here. The Xiang Qi preset could be used for my Eleport XQ, Elliards XQ, and Alibaba Qi! If there were a 'rate other comments' option this use of presets would merit an 'Excellent'.
