In his Chess With Different Armies game, maybe Ralph Betza allowed promotion to one of the opposing army's piece types to try to add even more variety/excitement to some situations that might arise in actual games. However, it does seem more in the spirit of chess-like games (or perhaps even the CWDA theme) not to allow such an option.
