Well Black can reply to Mh4 with Ph7, or by moving something to the back row to protect the Pawn, but I can see the merits of an all-protected array Pawn rank. How about having the same array as suggested here, but with the Cardinal and Marshal on the back rank between the Rooks. If a further name is required for such a variant I tentatively suggest Grandee Chess, as the set-back Cardinal and Marshal can fairly be described as grandees.
