Most of those seem to me things humans would not do much "if we knew more, thought faster, were more the people we wished we were, had grown up farther together", to take Eliezer's words as definition of CEV. Those are things humans do now because they don't know enough (about game theory, fun theory, ...), they don't think fast enough of the consequences, they suffer from different kind of akrasia and are not "the people they wished they were", and they didn't grow up far enough together.
That's one of the thing I really like about CEV : it acknowledges that was most humans spontaneously do now are not what our CEV is.
