This is a welcome change. It's nice to know that my missions will all provide 960 dilithium now.
Only thing better would be if you automatically were provided with the dilithium reward when completing a Foundry mission, provided it took you at least 30 minutes (measuring your own play time).

It's not necessarily that easy to do. For example, on my mission Dereliction Duty, you can spend over an hour talking on the Atlas to everyone on the deck, or you can go straight to the briefing and then back to the turbolift, spending less than 10 minutes aboard. So, how do you treat a map like that in terms of splitting up the mission?
That's an extreme example, but the point is the amount of time it takes someone to play a mission can vary wildly. We also don't have access to any sort of data to help us judge the length either.
