Loring up to Philadelphia just to see how he'd do. He seems to be able to travel with
impunity and send me back all sorts of info on what's going on in that region. Would it
be too complicated to have the game engine prevent leaders from moving in enemy
terrain without leading troops?

There is a simple solution for this problem, do not do it. AI doesn't do it and any decent player doesn't do it either.

Aside from the fact that Athena can see some more of what's going on behind the lines the only thing bad that can happen is in areas where you have little or no MC. Then if she's parked enough leaders in one region, especially high ranking leaders, she could prevent you moving a force from that region into a neighboring region in which you have no or very little MC. Look here for a more thorough explanation: Blocked by an Empty Corp
