Good point. This seems like an important oversight on my part, so I added a note about it.

One more point you might want to mention, is that in a world with AI but no intelligent explosion, where AI's are not able to rapidly develop better AI's, augmented human intelligence through various transhuman technologies and various forms of brain/computer interfaces could be a much more important factor; that kind of technology could allow humans to "keep up with" AI's (at least for a time), and it's possible that humans and AI's working together on tasks could remain competitive with pure AI's for a significant time period.
