Default Slow Spell

Re-reading the 'Pause' topic gave me an idea, that's been in a few RTS's in differing forms.

The spell would be a slow of sorts, and have an area affect. The choices as to it's ability would be:

Slow units or freeze them?
Can these units be attacked while slowed/frozen?
Single unit targeting or area of attack?

This would give spell casters the chance to get away if they are entrenched in melee combat. It would also give the possibility to slow down retreating units and cut them down with your cavalry.

Immobilization spells are generally some of the most powerful in any game. In fact, they're far more powerful than their equivilent in direct damage spells in many situations. Certainly the game should have some of these, and with the counter system it could make for interesting battles, but keep in mind that while a damaged warrior still fights at full strength, a disabled warrior is actually a liability to its player, and if that player decides to retreat the disabled units will be sacrificed to the enemy, removing that option.

I think it should be in the game as a high level spell that is just not overpowered.

EDIT: Yes, because water changes to ice. At first I thought you meant water from school and I was quite confused.
