Oneyed, that is not a losing condition, that is just a negative bonus.

But you are correct in saying that if you do not hold a capital you can have a bonus of minus 1.
As for the second one, not sure if I understand, Do you want a territ to lose 1 each turn and then also a second one if you do not hold a capital. This is not possible.
You can give each region you want a decay of 1 so it loses 1 every turn and a negative bonus of minus 1. The negative bonus will only effect the troops you can deploy though.

Could this not be done with the new XML features?

Not sure but if I read him correctly, he wants decays (which are constant) to get larger without a capital. That cannot be done now.
