I produced a few thoughts over the years about this topic both here
and on the sl4 list.  I finally put my thoughts on how to build
motivations into AIs so we could trust them in fiction (The Clinic
Seed).  Still, even a trusted AI could make the human race happily go
extinct (as happened in the story).  That seems beyond what could go
into the Canonizer.

My concepts were not particularly accepted as I recall (it's been a
long time) but I don't remember convincing arguments that giving AIs
human like motivations to seek the good opinion of humans and others
of its kind would not work.
