I don't really understand this one. Winter was usually a very good time to move an army even if the attrition was higher. Winter made the roads hard and reliable and rivers easier to cross.

I would imagine this new rule is supposed to apply to mountainpasses and the like.

The fact that they could cross stora bält had a lot to do with the winters of that part of the 17th century though (the period is refered to as the little ice age for a reason), it wouldn't be possible in the 1400 - 1500's. Possibly if the winter is very harsch the crossing penalty (and the possibility to block the crossing with ships) could be removed? But that does mean that you'd have to keep track of climate changes during the period a lot more closely.
As the time when this kind of crossing would be possible (and even then quite risky, while most of the army could march on the ice, some of it did go through it) is so short though, perhaps it's just a little to specific a change for a game stretching such a long period?
