I think it would have to be dependent on the scenario; there are several instances in the ECW where a “wing” of an army contained both cavalry and infantry. If you want to restrict a Commander to one arm only, then you will need to add in some extra commanders, which might skew the game, as it would perhaps make one army a bit more likely to activate units than its opponent. At the end of the day, the rules are really a framework and can be adjusted to the preferences of the players; for example we don’t use the ratings in the rule book, preferring those suggested by Wargames Designs, which, in our view, better  reflect the organisation and troop types in the ECW.
