Brets suffer from lack of tactical approaches, they're a bit of a one trick. Allowing knights to dismount and fight on foot would change things around, the mechanic already existed in previous Total Wars.
They would suffer from low numbers obviously, but should be more potent that the chaff peasantry. Probably not cost effective for infantry though.
