I have more than a few engineers (or settlers or workers) and freights (or
caravan) to send across the sea (to another continent). I wish there was a way
for allies to request the  transport of non-aggressive units ; I understand
aggressive ones might be a security concern thus might need a status higher
than allies.

This would likely be much later in the game development as it would be need a
resources negotiation system and/or a unit interaction one. For example, a
transport request is made for a number of units for a certain route, an ally
which routes doesn't fill his cargo nor doesn't have an urgent route goes
within a certain range of the origin, the requester would get a proposition
with the routes destinations ; also there could be a cost system, the further
detour and the more units, the more expensive the service is. Of course if the
servicing party get an emergency, he would have the option to offload any
units anywhere except into enemy territory.

It would be nice to see some economic cooperation later in the game.
Transportation, road/rail building, etc.
