Religions and political parties

It would be nice to have different religions on freeciv. Each religion give different wonders that works as pilgrimage sistes. The possibility of send missionaries to other nations and because of the pilgrims and missionaries influence other nations as 5th column. It should be possible to create schisms (in real religions all religions have different sects) and when you conquer the pilgrimage site the pilgrims be influenced by the sect controlling the pilgrimage site.
It should be possible different religious policies, both one single official religion and multiple official religions (like Ancient Rome), it should be possible to treat non-official religions differently like Ancient Romans that forbidden Christianity but allows Judaism as a licit religion despite both be non-official.
Countries that have only one official religions should only be able to construct pilgrimage sites for that religions but countries that sponsor more than one religion (like many kings from Antiquity such as Cyrus, Roman kings, and Indian kings did) should be able to construct pilgrimage sites of more than one religion.
You should be able to forbid or allow missionaries in yourr country. Converts from forbidden missionaries should be clandestine and persecuted by default but if you forbid missionaries the other nation may forbid yours too. The allowance or not of missionaries in one country, another, or both should be possible to be dealed in treaties.
Regarding political parties. When you turn your regime to a Republic or to a Democracy you should have at least 2 parties. These 2 initial parties should be controlled opposition like Democrats and Republicans in real life USA but it should be possible to new parties be founded independently such as when city people are in revolting that may founding a new town, and foreign religions controlled from abroad should be able to found their political parties too (because of it it should be important to have the power to create schisms from religions like Eastern Orthodoxy when most country have its local church) "secretly" controlled from abroad.
