It is less than ideal for those of us who want to complete the mission and move on to other things. Sure, it would be ideal if you could loop around in a mission that took only 2 minutes to complete, but those are far and few between.

And to my knowledge the skill points you get are miniscule in comparison to actually completing the episode... so why kill a few gorn over and over for small returns when you could just complete the mission faster and get a much larger skill point return? That to me, does not seem ideal.
This would not be affected by a loss of a mission instance as only completing a mission counts towards diminishing returns.
