Sam, I have downloaded your Capablanca Gustavian from Yahoo. You 
have in some variants placed the rooks on the extra corner squares 
instead of the Archbishops/Chancellors. The rooks are hemmed in on 
those squares whereas the Archbishops/Chancellors are not. Your 
'Flanking Archbishops Gustavian' is much better. May I suggest that you 
use the H-board for those variants where the rooks must be placed on 
the extra squares? Then the rook has immediate access to the a- and 
h-files. You could also implement a new form of castling (H-board castling). 
Then you could also keep the regular coordinates. In all variants 
you could also keep the standard castling rules. There should also be a 
variant with an Archbishop and Chancellor on the extra Gustavian squares.
