I'm not sure that auto-attack in this form is a good idea. It gives a strong
overweight to attack units in the field.

I think it is a good idea in cities. Formerly it was possible to move a
cannon slowly next to the city walls and attack. Now you can't get along
without some defensive units. This is both more realistic and better for a
city-centric play style.

In the field, the time factor (the time you need to make a move) is against
you, if you move the army and it is shot down by a single cannon somewhere.
