It actually had been months since I looked at this, and don't remember my thoughts on this.  All I can do is speculate here regarding several things:
1. I think I was concerned that there may be a chance for allowing someone to end up moving multiple times on a single board, without the other side moving, resulting in one side mating due to neglect.  My thoughts may of been ways to prevent that from happening, without ruining what this variant is attempting to do.
2. I think I was also postulating whether or not you could then spawn off different rules with each new board that is launched and if there were an infinite number of rule sets that could materialize.
