Sorry to be pedantic about this, but you mean the new ECU? To me, "combat" suggests the old pattern field uniform phased out about 10 years ago.
Follow up, why would there not continue to be unit tabs on the rank slider? The image on the DND web site shows the rank slide in the same location as the existing cadpat uniform.
This seems to be a repetitive pattern of policy in the army. 1939, battledress introduced, only rank to be worn. 1968, CF uniforms issued. No regimental identification to be worn. And, look what happened in both those cases. With battledress, the uniform ended up sporting regimental, formation, rank, trade, and good/long service insignia. Similarly, the CF uniform morphed into the DEU. I would be willing to bet that if insignia is prohibited on the ECU, it will only be a matter of time before they are added.
