1) Only one city at a time (per AI per continent) should be allowed
to build a wonder.

Before the AI tells a city to start building a wonder, the AI
should check to see if any other of its cities (on that
continent) are already building a wonder. If there are none,
then go ahead and start building a wonder in that city.

5) If a defensive (or other) unit is needed in the wonder-building
city, then one of the cities building a caravan should switch its
production to the needed unit (and then send that unit to the
wonder-building city).

could be improved:
a) if there is more than one city willing (and able) to build a wonder, only the best one starts it.
best one is based on: "high production" + "city position" (i.e. not many enemies nearby).
"high production" implies not caring about trade and caring about food only if a city growth is really close to come.

b) if the choosed city has got no good defense units, either a nearby city sends some, or builds some units before starting wonder. In no case a city with a wonder could be unprotected.

c) besides caravans, in case of need, even old obsolete units could be disbanded to gain production.

d) before building a wonder, if factory is not present in the city, AI should calculate if it is faster to build the wonder, or to build the factory and then the wonder. This is especially true if you have hoover dam and the city could support it (does hoover dam counts as hydro plant even in cities that could not have one?).

e) in case of pollution, all free engineers should have maximum priority in cleaning the wonder-building city. Building mines (and railroads, especially on iron) in that city should be high priority too.

question 1) when an AI contracts about giving away or getting cities, is he aware of wonders? And in war, when trying to conquer cities or inciting revolts?

question 2) is AI aware of other civilizations building wonders?
