        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.
