In Monarchy doesn't it make sense to build 3 defenders to a) defend and b) keep people happy? Wasting citizens as elvis is bad, too. And sharing some other cities units would waste shields there (if it exceeds the 3 units limit).

For each unit there are 3 things to decide: Where to build it, where to home it and where to station it. And units might need to be re-homed over time as things change.

...and this condition not to build defenders city assigned as wonder city applies even when there's no wonders to build. It still has no defenders, but now it's desperately going through build target fallbacks. When it cannot build anything else, it will build coinage.

Noticed in a autogame:
AI has heavy forces in every city but one. The one completely undefended city is one filled with wonders. It's the AI's "wonder city" where it concentrates on building wonders.

military_advisor_choose_build() usually do not choose anything for wodner city, with comment: /* Other cities can build our defenders, thank you! */
While it's sensible idea that wonder city should not waste time on building units but concentrate on building those wonders, there's nothing to make other cities to build defenders for it. Defender want is a local thing. All the other cities are not building more defenses when they have defenders for themselves, and those defenders will not leave their homecity as they are needed there.
