I also don't understand the proposal either.  Does attacking a pinned piece count as checkmating it?  If many pieces checkmate another, but some proper subset achieves the checkmate, do you get to choose which ones freeze, or do all of the pieces that attack any of the defender's movement possibilities freeze?

If I attack a blocked pawn with anything, I lose that piece, right?  This seems like it would lead to a very sluggish game...

Do you win upon checkmating the enemy king, even though afterwards your checking piece is frozen and no longer giving check?
Every piece is frozen.
You win upon checkmating the enemy king, meaning it doesn't have anywhere to go without getting captured.
