I think this is fine, at least until something better comes along.

Personally i find migration of population units to be an interesting
idea, but unsatisfactory in execution. It tends to force 'large pox' to an
extreme; before a city has been built up enough to attract foreigners it begins
to cannibalize neighboring friendly cities. By the time it can bring people
across the border it faces a challenge in feeding so many mouths. I can go
ahead and build the Supermarket, but what then? After the enemy city has
disbanded it leaves a ruin on the border; founding a new city there is of
course useless. If i had annexed the enemy city instead it would help to push
my border further out...

I agree with that.

spike this story just because it deals with dollar amounts beyond your
