I fully agree at this point.
Also, observe that, if the settler takes 2 workers, what happens if you want to
send settlers from one city to another? This action would loose efficience.

For those who thought that implementing the flux between cities would imply
some major changes:
We have the caravan, which already do this with shields (actually, only with
wonders, so minor changes are required)
We have the settler, which already do this with food.
Some minor problem is that the player has to deal with caravans and settlers for
this function, but the automation tool I suggest will reduce the job. (code near
