Ancients: Further Flanking refinements

I've been reviewing this situation again in my head:














On reflection, I think it will be too powerful if A and C get their full attacks in this set up.  So I'm thinking that in such a combat, only the unit with the most frontage in contact with E should get its full attacks.  The other two (A and C) should be able to contribute only half their dice.

In this scenario, attacks can be split.



Units would need to put at least half of their attacks towards the unit in front of them, with the largest contact.  (A against D, B against E, C against F).  They could then put half their attacks to any other unit, if they wished.  (So A could attack D and E, B could attack D, E and F, and C could attack E or F).

Rules such as Hail Caesar allow for supporting units to provide support (throwing essentially half dice), unless they are facing another unit, either in melee or such as an archer unit to their front. This would draw their focus away to a more dangerous threat.
