Will this become another example? (Firuzabad Ensemble)
I only miss the Shah-e Gour component from the new Sassanid Landscape WHS. The whole TWHS seems to have been forgotten, as another TWHS got promoted to this WHS.

Oops, it might be there as well, according to the locations I copied from the TWHS. I do not see it in the ICOMOS text however

"Firuzabad Romanized as Fīrūzābād; Middle Persian: Gōr or Ardashir-Khwarrah, literally "The Glory of Ardashir"; also Shahr-e Gūr " (Wiki)
So Shah-e Gur is the same as Ardashir-Kwearrah"
To quote from the ICOMOS AB eval of the Firuzabad elements -
"The Firuzabad group ........contains 5 individual sites. These comprise the Sassanid archaeological remains of the Tang-i Ab valley, a valley of strategic importance, and include the sites of Qaleh Dokhtar, the Ardashir Investiture Relief, the Victory Relief of Ardashir I, Ardashir Khurreh (the Middle-Persian name of Firuzabad) and Ardashir Palace. (my bold)
So - Shah-e Gur IS inscribed as part of the Firuzabad ensemble
