You do also run the risk of what might be coming up in the Foundry. By that I mean that, right now, we only have that one line of a dialogue, the default text. Well, in the future, we might be able to put in a conversation there instead, with multiple options, maybe a selection of default stores, that sort of thing.
So, in time, you might wind up having to change a bunch of them back to contacts. Of course, it is on Tribble, so it'll eventually all get nuked anyway, but...
That said, it'd probably be a good idea to /bug and/or post in the feedback forum that one should be able to set up idle contact anims a bit better. I should be able to, for example, set a base anim for a contact. And then add a second and third anim to play from time to time, with a weight and time between checks and such.
