A flaw in Dread Lords random event!!!

Last night I was cruising towards a technological victory with only the Arceans, the Tor, and myself remaining in a small galaxy. However, I had ignored the two precursor events to the arrival of the dread lords.
Well, the arrived and proceded to destroy every ship in their path, handicap my enormous trade economy, and push my tech victory out of reach. I feared all was lost.
However, as a last ditch effort, I pulled up the diplomacy dialoge with the Dread Lords. Well, it turned out I had a tech they didnt. I figure the dread lords are given a large amount of money. I know that the ai evaluates how much its willing to pay for tech partially based on how much it has.
I asked for 300000k a turn for 7 turns and the dread lords agreed!!! Needless to say, I started buying overlords, beat their forces back, sent in a fleet and conquered them in about 15 turns.
Now, despite no trade economy, I found myself with nearly a million k and the tech victory was an easy one.
Now, is it just me, or is that a slight exploit???

It is a known issue that you are very lucky when you get the Draginol event.

Unfortunately I don't get it any more since I usually end in 2190 to speed up gaining Metaverse points
