One point you are missing is that the text is addressed to the Young AI - which is above human level, but is still self-improving and is not omnipotent superintelligence.

Also, it is ok if AI will be able to come to the arguments which I suggested on its own - as it will demonstrate to the AI that the utility of human atoms is extremely small compared to the also small, but the positive utility of human preservation. If AI understands that preserving humans is instrumentally useful without reading the text - it's ok.
