In the current edition of War in the Pacific one only pay a modest one time political point fee to avoid the withdraw of Royal Naval Units. Is this reasonable?

These ships are generally required operations off map, some of which are:
The Invasion of Madagascar – This may be on the new Admiral’s Edition map?
Operation Pedestal – Malta Convoy(s)
The Invasions of North Africa, Sicily, Italy, Normandy, Southern France, and other operations.

Therefore the failure to withdraw these major units could have a significant effect on the other war in Europe.

Should this could be modeled as:
A more significant one-time political and or victory point penalty.
A continuing modest political / victory point penalty until one of the following occurs
A - you withdraw a unit of that type
B - the non-arrival of a unit of the same type.
The possibility of an off map event being delayed or failing. This could result in any of or all of the following:
Loss of political points
Loss of victory points
Loss or delay of reinforcements.

The withdrawal of Royal Naval escort units with the withdrawal of a capitol ship should also be looked into. Is only two destroyers a reasonable average? If they are not or partially taken there should be a chance that the capitol ship (and even escorts) are lost in route to Europe, costing the player replacement withdrawal(s), victory points and any of the effects above.

March 1942 – the withdrawal of a carrier is required – I choose the Formidable, with out escorts – It suffers the random event – Sunk enroute by U-Boat in South Atlantic in April 1942. I now have a call for a replacement carrier withdraw and escorts in April 1942.
The Formidable in now listed in sunk ships at a cost of 227 Victory Points by G7e Torpedo, location South Atlantic and any other effects the of it not arriving on schedule call for.

All your questions have basically already been answered in various AE threads.
