It's not a question of necessarily knowing all the different appearances a unit could take, but mistaking two similar looking units. I could see it as abusive to pick two similar appearances for very different unit types. It's not that it's impossible to tell them apart, it's that at a glance they can be mistaken, and that's an unfair advantage.

Beyond that, no matter how well you do in-game help, such a system will never be newb friendly. I think custom heraldry and some different options for colouring and design would be awesome, but entirely different models will probably drain too many resources and open up too many considerations like the one I just talked out.
