Quick Question: Diplomacy XP

I too am curious about the DXP potential here. We KNOW from the Devs that authors will NOT be able to assign mission rewards of any sort (XP value or otherwise), but that the missions are supposed to scale. It would be fantastic if non-combat missions automatically grant some DXP. Even if minimally, say 3-5 points instead of 10? Or similar.
I suppose that ideally, in the future (however far off it might be), part of the Mission Design process might include setting the Mission Type before creating the mission. Combat, Exploration, Diplomatic, etc. Perhaps this could be part of the formula for the mission payout. In other words, by establishing the mission type beforehand, the author identifies which XP type will be used by the Foundry Tool itself to determine payout.
This could be particularly beneficial in the long run, where it was possible to "Fail" a Diplomatic mission for example by attacking a target before reaching a diplomatic solution.
I'd certainly like to hear a Dev response to the OP.
