This would essentially be to play each of the levels without the preset goals, and with any colony type desired (although with a warning since some colonies might not work properly in all cases, like leaf cutters) in any difficulty setting.  This would add some additional replayability with using black ants in wood ant missions or wood ants in black ant missions. 

While this sounds like me to be a quick and easy addition, I suspect there may be barriers I am unaware of for the implementation that might leave this to be implemented after release.  I still think it's a good idea, however. 
And on the sixth day, God created ant in his own image, and gave them dominion over the earth and all of its creatures.  Amen.

Fun idea, but yes a lot of the trigger events and scripting are based on unique traits of the species you're playing as. Not impossible - I can imagine we'd need to gut a level of a lot of stuff and remove a lot of voice lines - but doable.

Something to maybe add to the list for future finalisation.
