In other words two units under direct control of the corps commander and the others rotating in and out to relive those, but very rarely more than two divisions active at a time.
Also the major benefit of forming a corps in EAW is not command points (though I would not be opposed to dropping command point cost down to 10) but rather for the corps elements to fight as a single unit and of course corps commander stats and traits affecting said elements. If you have opposing force with say one side having 4 corps and 1 separate division and the other side 2 corps and 6 separate divisions the side with the 4 corps if otherwise comparable in stats and equipment will probably have an advantage as it should.
But as I already said, in part I agree that there should be slightly more CP gain for the more streamlined command structure (taking some of the strain from army command). As current you'd have 6 CP per division and 1 CP per artillery/engineer or whatever is attached in the two free corps slots. So if outside corps structure they'd cost 14 CP, inside 12, a slight gain, but maybe not enough...

I was thinking in WW2 structures. My fault.
