The rules state that a leader may move along with a routed unit. If it does not, it will (most likely) be in the ZOC of the unit causing the rout. What then? May it OW? What if the unit advances (after combat or in the next phase), may it use OW then? Or must he wait to get rescued by the OC or die if moved upon by enemy units?
Can it move one hex with the routing unit and then (clear of the enemy ZOC) drop off?

4.62 Replace with: “The instant any combat unit moves adjacent to a leader, or if a combat unit is adjacent to an enemy leader after combat, whether he is alone in a hex or stacked with a friendly combat unit, that leader can undertake an Orderly Withdrawal. If he does not—or cannot, because he is surrounded by enemy units, ZOCs and/or impassable terrain—that leader is eliminated (captured/killed). A leader stacked with a combat unit that uses Orderly Withdrawal may withdraw with the unit (see 6.71).”
