Should CSA Army Commanders and Theater Commanders be tied to a state or theater of action?

Lee almost never left Virginia except for his dallance in West Virginia (still technically Virginia), his invasions of the North and building forts along the sea coast early in the war. Beaurgard did move west to help Albert Sidney, but never came back east. Oh, the south did send a Corp west to help Bragg at Chicamauga but the western theater seemed a backwater to the east. The seat of the CSA government was in the east and the western area of the CSA was deemed unimportant. So should the CSA leaders be tied to there states? In my AI games I have fought Joe Johnston at Manasas then the next month in Clarksville and the next in Memphis. Man did he get around! Maybe army commanders need to be tied to a theater commander and can't be more that 6 to 8 areas from him.

In the real world, a theater commander provides administrative and logistical support functions for army commanders. So realistically they should be tied to a theater and a specific TC.

But in the wbts game world...
