João, thanks for the reply. My hope is there could be a 'Chess of Tomorrow' project taking off that could do all the classification work, and so on, and help plan this stuff out. I know IAGO is vested in such activity. Someone have asked why such granularity is needed. Well, my take is that such is important to be able to run tournaments, and help to be able to cause something as diverse as chess variants to get traction. Also, coming up with a system that has mutators, will enable people to propose elements, without having the usual 'hey, let's do ANOTHER GAME based around a single idea'.
