If the 6" rule gets ditched, then I think there needs to be a rule that a unit can only impact a single objective (say, unit owner's declared out loud choice when they complete their activation or similar). Otherwise, you will get crazy 40k level shenanigans with conga lines and other silliness.
I should have mentioned this in the house rule thread, too. I like units to be able to flow through the terrain in ways that make sense, so I pretty much ignore this within reason, especially with 20 figures. I don't want to see them stacked on each other, or even all in base contact. I'd only allow one objective. I could see an issue with stringing a line of things across an area. Seems like there could be some neat interactions (if it could be put well) where you could make a light string of units, but they are at risk of getting ridden down. Like if Impact or Furious gets rid of them, the attacker keeps going (assuming more movement).
To avoid conga lines but still allow passage through narrow gaps perhaps the coherency could be re-phrased as, "Models must remain with in 2" of at least three other models in their unit". That woudl cause clumping but still offer a few more formation options, I think.
