warcraft-style fog of war means:

Have another layer of fog that shows the default map when stacks aren't around to see what is going on.
this should appear as greyed-out terrain.

On this layer, razed cities appear as whole cities.
cities appear as neutrals. e.g. you know there's a city there, just not what's going on with it.
army units do not appear.

The fogmap object already has 2 types for fog: OPEN, and CLOSED. OPEN means you can see what is going on. and CLOSED means you can't see what is going on. warcraft mode introduced a third kind of fog where you know the lay of the land, but you don't know what is going on. The terrain is open to a degree, but not the activity on that terrain. maybe OPEN_TERRAIN would be a good name for the new type of fog.

this fog of war mode would be added as an option -- it does not replace the current fog of war mode.
