Just had the rough thought that the stockpile PP are a good item to trade.

Its the only thing you can accumulate and depending on the technology it is cheaper to produce for some empires than for others.
An empire might choose to become good at producing stockpile PP and use it to trade with others.

One small consideration. To actually make use of traded PP, we would have to add extra technology to ease PP usage, else having a big stockpile is not useful.

Question is what could be traded for stockpile? Maybe influence points. Peace treaties. What you think?

I really like the idea of trading stockpiled PPs (and just trading).

Also researched techs, planets and fleets. Nothing new under the sun here (MOO, GalCiv...).

Since they seem to work the same way, maybe also a research point stockpile more geared for trade. That could be especially useful for someone shooting for the tech victory, as once you get toward the end, you have a whole bunch of RP and little to spend them on. Also influence points once those are a thing. Depending on weather or not they open up supply lines planets could also make a good trade-able resource, however we'd need an AI that would actually trade planets. Immigration is a thing in Stellaris, and a simple way to implement that might be "access" to a desirable species in the other empire, like Mu Ursh, or Hhoh. A completely different option might be to make your stockpiles shared as a diplomatic option.
