If you play with the ruleset option tech_leakage = 1 (Techs are cheaper if already discovered by other nations you have embassy with), then embassies become very important.

Currently, every treaty where AI accepts an alliance, it is also accepted if you request an embassy. I would suggest that AI does not give an embassy to an ally unless they receive his own embassy (or he has already an embassy established).

A couple of turns later I try to negotiate again. Turns out that the only clause they would accept is that I give shared vision to them.
They are "uncooperative" so I wouldn't expect any good deals with them, but I'm a bit surprised that they won't accept treaty where I give all my technologies to them and ask nothing in return.
Well, I guess one could cheat AI by giving them useless technologies that increase their researchcost under some tech_cost_styles or to pay diplcost(?), but... at least they could accept tech that they are currently researching anyway.

Omniscient AI doesn't really need embassies, but neither should there be any downside in having one. Yet I have treaty that AI is ready to accept, but when I add clause that I will also give embassy to him, he is no longer ready to accept. After I remove embassy clause he is ready to accept again.
Such embassy clause should definitely not be considered negative, and it would be probably good to consider them slightly positive.
