Absolutely. And FTD has, at it's current state, everything to micro but
the "E" camera... While the top down one is OK

but

the other E camera(accessed via tab) - which allows to have a wide and deep field of view while keeping a eye on a close to you unit or group of units - is not controllable well enough(movement works strangely and not fluent). The movement of it could be simply as the default free view or builder view...

And each unit could have maybe it's (optionnal)HP bar on top it or under it a la ressource bar.

And there could ctrl+1/ ctrl+2 ctrl+3.... unit selection

And the "off/on/patrol/combat/withdraw/teleport"
could be somewhere in a bottom menu that appears when you select a unit

And there also could be a general information bottom about the selected unit from "V"(including power tab) to understand quick what's wrong if a unit stopped firing while in combat without leaving the "E" view, maybe also weapon types...

Very basic RTS features in fact that could help to play FTD RTS dynamicly, without damaging other play styles, without changing any existing game mechanic.
All this would help doing actions while keeping an eye on what's happening at the same time.
