More numerous and smaller regions (whether the overall map size has to be increased to accomodate this or not). The current "March to the Sound of Guns" is a cool concept but the scale of the regions is too big for this particular game aspect. How do you hear the Sound of Guns across a region maybe dozens (if not a hundred) miles across?

It would be nice if there was a sliding scale of delay in arrival possibly influenced by the time it would have taken a Corp/Army to move from region A to region B (at force march pace). It sits uneasily with me that nearby commands can MTSG and arrive at the very start of battle when terrain and weather conditions are such that under normal movement conditions it would take a week or more to travel the required distance.

Since the Union movement was known to be underway, Johnston did not and should not have waited for the battle to start before beginning a countermovement.
To make an argument that Johnston, at Winchester (or just south of there) could not possibly have heard the guns at Manassas, and marched to the battle in time, is to totally miss the point of a game mechanic that was wisely installed to compensate for command and control problems directly caused by the 15 day turns, and thus the long delay inherent on the part of the player in reacting to any enemy move.
I think you're a tad off on thinking that Johnston could have heard the guns at Manasas all the way from Winchester and marched his command to aid Beauregard in time. Don't forget that Johnston was ordered to rail his way from Winchester to Manasas before the battle ever started.

Well, the idea is that if you like the demo, you BUY the game...
