I believe that the Janus pre-set has the Kings and Queens reversed.  Although the reversal looks natural, the rules state: '... the king is at the left of the queen, so the queen still starts at a square of her own color.'  I do not think it matters much for the tournament... However, for a serious Janus player who would be familiar with openings it could be an issue.  I know that I would not like to play Fide Chess with Kings and Queens reversed.
