It's been mentioned both here and in a couple of the interviews that it will
be possible to disable commander mode from server side.

Also the radar mentioned is not what I would call "Gods eye" :)
individual units are TINY! , you see Tanks and such pretty okay, and theres 
also a slight diffrence in "radar cheats" and "BF2 radar", that being that not
EVRYONE can use it, it is one guy who must communicate what he sees on it
to the other people, something that is suprisingly difficult actually :)
