Presumably the missing bit on the First Approach - Rooks move as Bishops - is that Bishops move as Rooks. I had not noticed the First Approach at the time of my previous comments, and my comments apply to the Second Approach. First Approach is even worse than Second Approach - representing Rooks and Bishops as each other is confusing and colurbinding the Knights into Camels serves no useful purpose. If there were only the First Approach I would rate it poor.
