If you intend to integrate this to RTS (or vice versa) I think you should start with compromises when making a seamless integration.

This is why I think Impression games style is more suited, although the primary reason of why I adore SC4 is micromanagement, you should avoid too much detail imo.

It is manageable in a game solely made for it but if you integrate other genres, it becomes more of burden. I don't know you , but I even can't handle farms in AoE in time when having a noticable fight.
I think he means to make the city simulator element more of a meta game that serves a major purpose in the effectiveness of the RTS mechanics. You are right though, the idea of making the City Sim merge seamlessly with the RTS portion is a rather daunting idea. My aspiring goal is to create a game that's high in depth and complexity, but simple enough for a vast majority to pick up. As long as the mechanics are simple enough to understand, the general idea of the game becomes less stressful.

Everything in the realm of possibility is within our grasps. The only question is how far we're going to reach.
