Your stance is respectable. I however remain in the belief that restriction on growth due to REV and city limits is as core to the C2C spirit as the increased food to grow a population point. And so I will continue my recommendation of it. Let it be known that I do very much agree with your analysis of REV, in short, that the AI cannot quite handle it, and all of it's offshoot effects. However, I feel that the bonus they get from the higher difficulties is enough to counteract this, though I will be the first to admit that I could be wrong.
