Seriously, Ivan is vital just as he is -- being promoted to Ambassador would be a waste of his talents. Instead, I can imagine Ivan and Tej enjoying their two-year exile, then being pulled back into action because Imperial Auditor Miles needs an organizer and a linguist. And, Ivan and Tej discover that they like it.

Yes - but people change.    One reason we love Miles so much is that we saw him grow into being a married auditor.
