That problem was also in x-com, and unless something is changed, it will happen here as well.
What brought me to write about it is this topic:
What happened to me several times in x-com, was that the first alien i've captured alive was an alien leader (taken from a base for exmple).
After "researching him" i got the Alien Origins entry saying that the alien didn't knew much and we need a leader...
You can see how dumb it is...
So i think this entry shouldn't be part of the tree, it should be an independet entry that can be researched but can also be skipped (and if skipped then it cannot be researched, meaning that if u research a leader and then a normal alien then you wont get this entry).
If u research a leader first you get both this and the next research at the same time.
Take a look at this quote:
Think how dumb it would look if you research a leader...
We have not been able to get any special important information from this alien. A alien higher in the hierarchy would be able to tell us more important information.
