I think you should move the Enemies=Opposing nation to ship attack/bombard description. That way no one has to look all over the map to see what constitutes enemy ships. Something like this:
I also have the reference to the enemy planes in the air force section. If I use your suggestion, then logically I need to put it there as well. As people normally read from left to right, if I put the rules of engagement on the left of the legend so this is going to be what most people read first, it should solve the problem. Either that, I need to place it with the airforces.

Since you have some room at the bottom of the playable area of the map, shuffle the ARA ships and names around and increase the size of the legend height-wise. With the moving of the Enemy=Opposing nation, you can increase the font size a bit so that it will be readable on the small.
I have got extra room for the legend in the small by using the sea territs at the top of the board, airforce strip and some pixels in the large legend. So the small legend will take up a bigger percentage of the map (not much more, between 5-10%)) but with so many different parts of the legend (each draft has gotten more rules added to it), this is the only way to squeeze it all in without applying for a larger small version which is not what I would like to do. Let me get the small legend made up today for you to see what I mean.
