I understood what you were saying, for what it's worth.

The counter-argument, as I understand it (not that I believe it),
is that a slightly broken self-improvement routine, good enough
to self-improve to some extent, might exclude morality.  That is,
at some level it would lose out to a moral self-improver if one
was around to compete with it - but perhaps, by the time that
level is reached, no one (broadly including all other sentients,
human or otherwise) is around to care any longer as it starts to
break down.
