All production is to be set to non-speaking beasts, which are then sent one at a time to attack their allies' strongest defenses. That way the allies get to train up a bit faster than simply using training.
But I can see why they might not have been able to hash that out.

Actually, I'm not sure if this is new information or not, but this update also tells us that sides can pop less than their maximum amount of units (as required by the So-be-it Union contract). Therefore a side is never really in danger of overpopulation, since they can always scale back production.
As you said at the beginning of your post, aggression is needed not only for more income, but to level your troops for appropriate defense. You could scale back popping to maintenance levels and never worry about overpopulation, but if you aren't out there fighting and leveling, you are left with a force of lower level units that don't put up as strong a defense.
