While this opening looks like a Two Knights, can it also be argued it's a Scotch?

It can be, it's also known as 'The Scotch Gambit' - the d5 idea etc is an old idea. (Having said that I just noticed what it is called above here on my chess thing (pgn4 or something).

I think it is sound enough, but Black has to be careful.
