A related problem is that the AI often gives shared vision without
demanding quid pro quo; then asks for it repeatedly, without
consequences to refuse it.

Also, human players don't automatically withdraw vision from enemies,
which is odd.  There should at the very least be a popup asking to
withdraw vision, if it's not done automatically (I could see giving
vision to an enemy in some strange circumstances).

Finally, a more general problem: the AI very rarely drops alliances or
sues (or even accepts, at any price) for peace.  An alliance lasts
pretty much forever; a war does too.  Macchiavelli would shake his head
at this.
