Missed this bit in my earlier respopnse:

Actually, I would think that they would regard it as in their global security interest to have this technology, rather than rely on other races to provide the access (or take it away) whenever they deign to do so. Studying it also would enable the development of better defenses against future incursions into Earth's airspace, as it were.

Maybe, not out of the question, I just dont find it very wise of them. Better to keep those doors closed, never know when a highly PO demi-god might shoot out of it and mayhem ensues...
What is wise for characters to do and what is consistent with their motivations are two different things. Also, I submit to you that avoiding portal research will do nothing to prevent future invasions from other worlds. Earth cannot control the actions of others. They can only do the best they can with what they have.
