He'd either fight Luffy and get pwned badly, or not fight at all. That's why I say his character will follow more of a side story approach, at depicting the inner strife of the marines codes and ideology then actually fighting.
It would also work if Coby comes across information on the SH's motives and whereabouts, and has to struggle with the decision of whether to do his duty or turn a blind eye. Akoji and Garp have done the same thing by letting them go several times, when they could have easily annihilated them.
Yeah, I liked his character progression alright. My thing is, I just don't think he'll ever catch up enough power-wise to be a major character. He seems like he'll always be a side character like Tashigi that's just always seen hanging around the "big dogs", in his case Garp.
But from Marinford, Coby's Haki is ridiculous too.

"Why, Mr. Kyf? Why do you do it? Why get up? Why keep fighting? Do you believe you're fighting FOR something? For more than your Characters survival? Can you tell me what IT is? Do you even know? Is IT freedom? Or truth? Perhaps peace? Yes? No? Could it be for love? Illusions, Mr. Kyf. Vagaries of perception. The temporary constructs of a feeble human intellect trying desperately to justify a shinobi that is without meaning or purpose. And all of them as artificial as the Matrix itself, although only a human mind could invent something as insipid as love. You must be able to see it, Mr. Kyf. You must know it by now. You can't win. It's pointless to keep fighting. Why, Mr. Kyf? Why? Why do you persist?"
