Split the action "Incite City"
Stop relying on the Spy unit type flag to decide if the "Incite City" action consumes the actor unit. Split the new action "Incite City Escape" from "Incite City". The former will have its actor try to escape. The latter will always consume the actor unit.
This makes it possible to create a ruleset where all actor units, including those with the Spy utype flag, are consumed when inciting a foreign city to revolt and join the actor's side. It makes a ruleset where no actor units, including those without the Spy utype flag, will try to escape after inciting a revolt. It also makes more complex rules, like "inciting a revolt consumes the unit unless the city belongs to a democracy, possible.

May I ask you to include "Establish Trade Route" in the list of actions that can be used without consuming the actor. I think it would be useful for a trade route system based on goods and resources.
I do not use to read development tickets, but feel free to add me to the carbon copy if you want me to help test one of your patches.
