On reflection I may have been looking at it wrongly. Perhaps the real inconsistency is promotion to a piece that is so much weaker than the Dragon pieces of the original Ryu Shogi. Gaining the whole Knight move in the second zone and the King's move as well on the third, and having the crowned piece as promotee, would be consistent with the rules for Bishop and Rook.
